Apartment : Marisha's flat is a cozy 2 room apartment situated in a sleeping area at the north east of Chisinau. The area is quite new (only about 30 years old) very lively and largely expanding. There are many supermarkets, local shops and markets, as well as, bars, restaurants, fast food and pizzas and night clubs. The transportation system is well organised and Ciocana is connected with Chisinau center and other part of the city with plenty minibuses, buses and trolleybuses. It's only 15-20 minutes by bus from here to downtown and the ride is deadly cheap.

The apartment has a double room and a twin room, a guest kitchen with a little balcony and the bathroom and toilet room. All main rooms are facing the West that makes it very light with a lot of sun in the first half of the day.

Apartment's facilities : 24 hours hot water, washing machine, free linen and towels, a well equipped guest kitchen, TV with video player, map of the area, map of Chisinau and of Moldova, travel information corner with books and leaflets about Moldova and it's sightseeing.

Our collection of English movies is modest, but contains some really good pieces: Carry on ..., Fawlty Towers, Scum, Transporting, Casino, Star Wars, Dark City, Reservoir Dogs, Catch me if you Can, Groundhog Day, GoodFellas, They Live. Monty Pyphon etc. We will appreciate any donation of an English movie on VHS or of a book in English that you may want to leave behind with us.

Specifics : Marisha with her hubby and child live in Manchester, UK at the moment, so their parents are looking after the flat and their guests in Chisinau. You will be met by either Boris, Katherine or our guide Natalia when you arrive to the flat. Please, note that they do not live in the apartment all the time, so you should make proper arrangement regarding your arrival with us by email .

Additionally, we'll ask our guest not to smoke inside the flat and to take their shoes off inside the apartment. There are carpets on the floors in each room and the cleaning is done regularly. Also, we would appreciate if you keep a low level of noise after 11 pm, to keep the neighbors content.

Costs : 10 EURO per person per night. Laundry service may cost some extra to cover the costs of the detergents and maintenance of the washing machine (please, request when you arrive).

Getting around : best way is by public transport (buses, trolleybuses and minibuses). Minibuses are very frequent and fast. They run from early in the morning and until about midnight. The cost is 3 moldovan lei and should be paid to the driver when on the entrance. May be crowded on the rush hours (8 to 9 am and 6 to 7 pm). Buses and trolleybuses are usually larger and more comfortable. They stop at regular stops, so easier to use to travelers. Bus fare is 2 Lei and trolleybus fare is 1 leu. To be paid to the conductor on the bus. Taxis are very cheap in Chisinau, so you may consider it when coming back to the flat after midnight. Flag the cab on the street or order by phone.
