The building was magnificent with old world charm. Two souvenier shops, same old... A huge picture of Uncle Ho dominates the building interior. Building lovely but really nothing to do but a quick look.

The history and the building were interesting, and the clocks on the wall and the phone booths were interesting, we stopped and rested on the benches inside before we carried on our walk, it was very warm.

Its an awesome building attraction. Besides you can get your stamps and postcards there for your letters. Maybe getting the postcards outside should be cheaper

No. 2, Paris Commune St, District 1, open 8AM to 5PM. A French colonial gem, compared to the pedestrian post offices in any large Asian city. Lots of details posted by other reviewers so will just say it's a large building, with pretty pink exterior and a large working clock. Interior - an elongated hall with high, arced ceilings and,...

The architectural design of the building was great. If I am not mistaken, the building has a French inspired design... so cool!

Well restored period building. Built between 1886 and 1891 by Gustave Eiffel. A fair bit of touristy items for sale within, some quality, but mostly tat.

The exterior is really nice but interior is so so. We love the old charm where you can still mail your letters through the counters and there are tables where you can sit and write your letters.
