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
Sinagoga Suite
This is an dlegant and very bright apartment of about 200 sqm, with an extraordinary view of the wonderful synagogue in an area of Florence that removed from the crush of tourists, but still accessible on foot to everything in the center.

The apartment is on the first floor up from ground (with elevator) of a prestigious building from the 18th century. It is quiet and fully furnished, composed of 3 bedrooms, each with their own ensuite bathroom: 2 with king size beds, the other with 1 single bed, while the 6th single bed is in the open space looking over the living room.

As you enter the apartment you will find a bright, elegant and spacious living room (with wonderful and original frescoed ceilings), 2 sofas and a huge wooden bookcase. At the bottom of the room there is a fully equipped kitchen (separated by a partitioned, moving wall). On the same floor, two king size bedrooms (one with bath tub and shower, the other with just a shower stall). There's plenty of closet/storage space, and wooden floors throughout.

From the living room a set of wooden stairs takes you to the upper floor where the 3rd bedroom is located. It has 1 single bed (bathroom en suite with shower) and a studio/open single bedroom which overlooks the living room.

There's also a small, but romantic little terrace off the living room.
