I'm a PhD student from Switzerland, Lausanne.
Ilja and I had a chance to have a long chat over a few cups of tea on his first day in Rome and exchanged ideas freely on just about anything, from food to life. As a guest he was tidy and respectful. I appreciated his independence - he explored the city and even came back with recommendatiins on a nearby restaurants - and clarity in communicating plans.
An intelligent man and a good guest to have.
Ilja and her gf were great guests! On time, polite, easy-going, nice to talk and left the apt clean! They are welcome back any time!
