“Oasis in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

The GPO Sydney at Martin Place is the old Post Office, converted to bars and restaurants. Unusual, as there is interior is open, surrounded by the outside walls and with bars and huge void inside. Character with all the history and old stone with nooks cut out here and there. A place for lunch or drinks.

“The Dead Letter Office”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

I hope I've got the right place. The old GPO as it was known has been transformed into a 5 star hotel with a great Sushi train restaurant where all the mailboxes for businesses once were. It is a great example of the adaptive reuse of an old heritage listed building.

“Sydney Post Office”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Another great old Sydney building, bet that they wouldn't be handling the same amount of letters that they would have when it was originally built, as they would now

“magnificent old building in Martin Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

so far as I am aware as a resident of Sydney, the GPO is just a small area of the building [when I was a kid it was the entire ground floor}. You can still see some of it which now house shops, but the classic view is from Martin Place at its facade and clock tower with our version of Big Ben
