“beautiful building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Beautiful building. It is definitely a spot to check out, the location is across the street from the cathedral so 2 attractions in one spot!

We took the opportunity to use the ATMs too.

What an incredible post office. It's quite impressive to see inside. Postcards available in the shops and it's easy to post.

“Good architectual building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

The Central Post Office is not too far from Notre Dame Cathedral, so might as well take a short walk to appreciate the fine building beautifully designed. When entering the post office and seeing the traditional counters, one would feel that he has gone back in time to the 1950s. There are traditional phone booths where you can make long distance calls. There are also some souvenir shops inside.

“A surprising gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

It is worth a trip to the central post office which is free to look round. It is like a trip down memory lane, but also includes dome really nice little shops as well.
