If you are a traveler and a shopper, you will not like this place that much, just another mall in a developing country, far from anything you can see and enjoy in Europe, still some shops where you can maybe shop. There is a huge store with everything on the first floor /food, cosmetics, toiletries/, which can be useful to some. Mini buses get you right there without a problem.

Went there twice... once to look for a dress for my Fiancée, another to take her son bowling. It's a nice large mall according to European standards.

We were in Chisinau this July 1st-5th, sleeping at the adjacent Weekend boutique Hotel.
So naturally this mall was an ideal place to spend time in ... and we did.
Location: 30-40 minutes by foot from the center of the town or a 5-10 minutes fare by taxi for 35 leu (3$)
Prices: not cheap, like the emporium in Bangkok, but full of stores, of any kind and, really, a an island of western Europe in eastern Europe (-;
BTW cleanliness: perfect
This is a big an modern like ours and with everything in it:
Hypermarket, Electronics, Bookstore, and of course tons of clothes and fashion shops ... not cheap yet less expensive than in western Europe.
And also 2 cellulars suppliers stores: Orange and especially Moldcell where for 40 lei (3.5$ or 3euro) you get a Sim card with 25 minutes of airtime for local ... or international calls (just make sure to start the saving mode suggested by SMS and don't miss it like me)
The 4th floor is reserved to entertainment and restaurants, of all styles: Mexican, Greek, Japanese, Italian, Chinese, Mac Donald's, Ice cream and fast food, even a casino...
Careful: the movie theater on the 4th floor does not show movies in English but all dubbed to Russian with Moldavian subtitles so nothing English spoken there
This mall also has 2 exchange bank branches opened 10am-10pm which make all this location extremely convenient

In case you read reviews for other places in Chisinau ... no " working girls" in the streets around, it is not the center of town but we felt very secure.

By the way if you like green areas there is a nice and big park just across the Dacia boulevard adjoining the mall.
There are also 3 small lakes (or big ponds).
Don't expect anything extraordinary since the maintenance in Chisinau needs improvement but these are green areas peaceful and relaxing with a good restaurant at the bank of the main lake. You can jog, walk, sit and read, also rent a kayak....or swim as do the locals, real nice in July.

If I am back in Chisinau, I will return.

There is not a lot you can say about Malldova. It's a nice shopping centre with some good cafes and a nice coffee house. A great place to people watch.

It is a useful point in Chişinău for getting your bearings and an easy place to ask to be taken to when speaking to a taxi driver! "Mall-dova please!"

There is a nice hostel just behind the mall and also a nice boutique hotel accross the road so it's a good place to stay to explore the city easily.

it seems weird that a mall like that could exist in Chisinau but hey, why not. Nothing really special or impressing is going on there. Tip: keep good control of your time cause you might be there for a loooooong time before you realise it
