We stayed in Cristian's apartment from May 28 - June 8 and had an excellent time. The building is old and without an elevator but the apartment has been renovated and is in great shape. My friends stayed in the bedroom and I used the couch. The wifi worked perfectly and the tv was ultra modern with lots of great stations to view. The area was on the outskirts of town but taking a taxi was very cheap and the one hour walk to the centre was pleasant along the river. One problem was construction going on just opposite our building. However, with the windows shut we could ignore it quite easily and the aircon worked very well.
Cristian is very friendly - he picked us up from the station, helped us get settled in and came over right away to explain or fix things whenever we had a minor issue, such as the closet door getting stuck. All in all, he made the experience very comfortable for us. Thanks, Cristian !
