Unbelievably friendly and warm staff who gladly gave expert travel advice and recommendations that only a Roman would normally be privy to. - Loic Diels
I LOVE this website and will gladly recommend it to anyone headed this way. Nothing disappointed us! - Mary-Iris Taylor
I have been using Cross-Pollinate for about 10 years now. The service is consistently great and I can always find just the kind of apartment we like, at the right price. - Hirani Himona
A really great idea - with a network of hand picked little rooms/guesthouses. If only we could have this in more city destinations! - Zoe Buck
I love Cross-Pollinate and every time we go to a new city I look to see whether they have some accommodations over there. - Arantza Aldea
The two places I have stayed at from Cross-Pollinate have been among the best across Europe. Highly recommended. - Nicholas Burn
Thanks a lot to Cross-Pollinate for the opportunity to experience a city as an insider! We really enjoyed our stay in Rome and Venice and look forward to more. - Tatiana Marchenko
Cross-Pollinate was very helpful when the owner of the B&B wanted to charge us for the baby under 2 y o. It would have been difficult without them since the owners did not speak any english. - Yulia Pichugina
This was our only stay with a C-P apartment and we were very pleased with the entire process. Will look to use them again on our next Europe trip! - Anthony Giglio
Great web site and quick response from the team a CP made the whole experience easy and hassle free. I have already recommended CP to quite of few of my airline industry colleagues and I'm sure they will make use of their excellent service. - Shane Pickles
Cross-Pollinate was extremely helpful! They found us a place to stay in our price range when many other places of business couldn't help us. - Sarah Seminutin
Cross-Pollinate was very easy to use, and it is so much better to stay in places like these than big corporate hotels; you get a much better feel for the place. - Kaspar Deane
Very straight forward. Well done. Definitely would use it again. Love these type of alternatives to hotels! - John White
Cross-Pollinate was fantastic and easy to use. We used Cross-Pollinate to book a room in Florence (the second leg of our trip), which was everything I thought it would be. We have recommended Cross-Pollinate to our friends. - Barbara Carlin
Cross-Pollinate are great - the descriptions are accurate and they are very responsive to questions. - Dominique Bayne
Cross Pollinate was just the best. I had tried a couple of places before coming upon them. As soon as I sent the first email I stopped looking for any more websites. I just wish they expanded to every city in Europe. Their knowledge, helpfulness, etc. was second to none. - Caroline Collis
La Terrazza dei Miracoli
"La terrazza die miracoli" gets its name from the famous "Chiesa di Santa Maria die Miracoli" which is situated very close to the B&B. Also within walking distance are Piazza San Marco (about 10 minutes), Ponte di Rialto (about 5 minutes) and from the "vaporetto" stop with departures for the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello, as well as to the airport and the train station (Piazzale Roma.

The neighborhood, Cannaregio, is central and has preserved honest Venetian charm, being one of the most authentic neighborhoods where lots of Venetian still live their everyday lives.

There are 3 bedrooms with another room reserved for the owner (who is rarely there but always close-by). All rooms are equipped with satellite TV, free wifi and air-conditioning. A total of 2 bathrooms are to be shared between the 3 guest rooms.

The B&B is situated on the 3rd flor (as usual in Venice.. without elevator!); room are bright and with a nice view over the roofs of Venice.

Antionette is so sweet and hospitable. She serves a sweet breakfast of yogurts crossaint, fresh bread with Soreads and delicious cappuccino. The terrace is so wonderful we sat out there at night with some wine and dessert, it was lovely. Off the beaten path so it's nice and quiet. Open your windows in the morning and hear the tower bells ring.. so wonderful. Clean spacious room. Comfy beds.
Nothing everything was perfect! we'd stay there again and again it made our stay so pleasant
Convenient easy transaction

Wonderful room with great views of Venice. Great hosts. Really nice rooftop continental breakfast. Will definitely stay there again and recommend it to others. Also, special thanks for letting us leave our luggage for the day we were departing and hang onto the door keys. Since we weren't leaving until that evening on the overnight train this allowed us to keep exploring Venice the whole day without having to take our luggage to the station for storage first. This was much appreciated!
Loved Cross-Pollinate! Will use it again for our next trip to Europe.

I absolutely loved our stay at La Terrazza dei Miracoli in Venice and would highly recommend it! The building is historic Venetian, and the rooms are decorated in a wonderful Venetian style and very comfortable. The rooftop terrace is a gorgeous view of the Venice skyline, breakfast was delicious and our host really welcoming and friendly! We feel incredibly lucky to have found this spot and recommend it to all our friends traveling to Venice. We have used sites like cross-pollinate and airbnb for many different cities in Europe, and honestly La Terrazza dei Miracoli is one of our favorite stays!
I cannot think of anything that could improve this wonderful place. (Be aware that it is up a few flights of stairs with no elevator.)
This was my first time using Cross-Pollinate, but I will definitely check it out again for future trips.

Antonella was just delightful, such a lovely caring lady who made our stay a joy. The apartment was very clean and beautifully appointed with a Christmas tree, Christmas decorations and a baby grand piano. The views were spectacular and the location just wonderful (close to the Rialto Bridge). The breakfast was huge and had plenty of variety. Antonella even made us coffee and brought us the Venice special Christmas delicacy as well as the daily fresh pastries. The apartment was very clean and we had use of the stove and oven. Thank you so much Antonella for a magical visit to Venice AAA+
Excellent, great communication. AAA+

Great location out of the main tourist drag but easy walking distance to the action Nice restaurant downstairs Owner's directions for getting there were absolutely perfect (thank goodness, because Venice is difficult to navigate!) Great breakfast provided with lots of options Amazing view from rooftop terrace Nice large room, beautiful bathroom cleaned daily
If you are worried about sound/privacy, be aware that there is not much soundproofing here and we could often hear voices in the hall etc. At times the shared bathroom was inconvenient when we had to wait on other guests to finish. Antonella was absolutely lovely but speaks almost zero English so communication could be difficult None of these issues were very bad, we would absolutely stay there again - just some quirks to be aware of when booking.
Good communication from Cross-Pollinate and we felt a level of security knowing they would help us out if there were any problems.
Jane Wilson on Oct 2014:

The room was even more beautiful than the pictures indicate. Antonella was a gracious host, provided a lovely continental breakfast, and eagerly accommodated our early departure hour by serving us breakfast early. The view from the balcony was great, and we ate there every day.
Everything was lovely!
Our experience with Cross-Pollinate was positive in every way.
Jenn on Sep 2014:

This B&B is in the heart of the maze of Venice. It is really easy to get to the square or anywhere else as long as you have a map or GPS. This is a lovely place to stay, with a great view from the balcony.
Thanks for all your help!
Melissa & Cory on Jun 2014:
Everything! The room was beautiful, the terrace was miraculous, our hosts were kind and friendly. We would be happy to come back any time!
