Nice apartment in Central botanica
Igor was a great host, kind, easy going, generous. He gave the best of himself to help us to feel at home! We felt comfortable and safe in his flat. It was easy and smart to cook there! The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was nice! The flat was super clean! Igor gave us the best adress to enjoy moldovan food and wine! Thank you so much for everything! I recommend this host to everyone who wants to have the friendliest experience in Chisinau! Игорь очень гостеприимный, добрый, спокойный, и щедрый человек. Он предложил нам лучшее, и мы почувствовали себя как дома! Мы чувствовали себя комфортно и безопасно в его квартире. Готовить было легко и приятно! Кровати были удобными, и ванная была хорошей! Квартира была супер чистой! Игорь посоветовал нам лучшие места, чтобы насладиться молдовской кухней и вином! Огромное спасибо за все! Я рекомендую эту квартиру для всех, кто хочет иметь дружелюбный опыт в Кишиневе!
Igor is a very nice, good person and the communication was good. He showed me where to go and also called a taxi to the airport. The flat is nice but my stay was very painful because the house is marked as non-smoking on Airbnb but it is NOT non-smoking and I felt extremely uncomfortable because of third hand smoke which has been proven to be very unhealthy too. I had respiratory issues and was congested the next morning. There was an ashtray placed there which prompts people to smoke and there are no no-smoking signs and the unit is rented not only through airbnb so this unit needs to clearly be stated as "smoking allowed" UNLESS every guest is explicitly requested to not smoke, there is no ashtray around, there are no-smoking signs, the unit is advertised as non smoking on every website, and guests are even warned of consequences of not complying to the rules. The unit needs a new toilette seat. The current one is broken and is very inconvenient. The stove does not work without matches so I had to buy matches but that's not a big deal. Just little details that make a difference. Needless to say a smoking place has an unpleasant smell. The unit is on a VERY noisy intersection so if you want a quiet sleep look for somewhere else, or take good ear plugs. The address listed on airbnb is not the actual address of the apartment. Even if they are the same place, having multiple addresses is enough to confuse the newcomer to a new country. The blanket (duvet) provided was not clean. It was clearly used before, soiled, and not washed. Overall, while I think Igor is a good nice friendly person, the flat and the way it's listed needs improvements. Most important change is to list it as a smoking flat so people like me who are highly allergic to cigarettes don't have to suffer there. The unit was unbearable and torturous for me as a person who refuses to stay at smoking places -- but I arrived at night and in a foreign country where most people don’t speak English and I didn't have the possibility to move out -- so I stayed and bore the pain.
