About this listing
We offer one room at the city margin, in a quiet area. The breakfasts are free. All facilities available, good transportation, excellent communication, and close markets. Free car parking is just under the window.
The place is comfortable and clean. The room we offer is a sort of modern style. It takes 10 minutes to the downtown. You never get bored with my two kids, but they can be quiet to listen to a fairytale. My wife cooks excellently and we'll be happy to learn new cuisine magic from visitors. Our kitchen is large and guests can freely use the fridge or show us their culinary skills. In our apartment, all meals are free.
For those who wish to email or chat we provide a computer with cable internet, or a netbook and tablet - your choice - with wireless internet. A handphone will be given for the period of stay.
We are providing an all-inclusive room for couples and lonely travelers. They will benefit from cable TV, wired and wireless internet, a desktop PC, a laptop PC, a tablet PC, a printer (scanner & copy machine), a washing machine, hair dryer, a music stereo system, fully functional kitchen and bath tube, water boiler, and all necessary furniture.
Interaction with Guests
I can be your guide through the capital and inside the country. I can show museums, monasteries, shopping malls, restaurants, parks, wineries, and other buildings and sightseeings.
As a journalist, I can answer your questions about the political system in Moldova, economic status, social affairs, and other topics. I will be happy to get you out (email hidden) or famous Moldovan wine. We can accompany our guests in their sightseeing tours and visiting the landmark venues. We can join for discussions on Moldovan history and current affairs. Culinary tastes are something very private and individual, therefore we can provide meals on request only. We buy food together and we cook together. I am a journalist, communication specialist and media entrepreneur, and my wife is a medicine doctor and an excellent cook. There's much we can learn from each other.
It's a lovely and quiet neighborhood outside, with young moms walking their toddlers in a small park and old buddies doing sports at a local stadium. A nice view towards the hills at the city's boundary on the opposite side of the building.
Public transportation is frequent and various, but may not be suitable for those used with high-standard travel services.
Other Things to Note
We can also give a car (Renault Scenic) for local or national travel, for an extra fee.
We don't smoke inside. Guests are asked to enter the apartment before the night. They also have to assume all expenses for travels outside the city and meals outside our apartment. No pets are allowed. We expect decency and answer the same way.
This was my first trip to Moldova and the Stratan were impeccable hosts. Aurel took the time to show us Chisinau and its surrounding environs, welcomed me into his home as if I were a long lost uncle who was finally visiting, and made every effort to ensure my visit was pleasant and complete. In short, the Stratan family were the consummate hosts and showed unerring hospitality at every turn.
