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

great spot !... right next to the main bridge. We met the host on arrival. He gave us an insight in where to go and what to do and was 100% right :) we never took a taxi as everything we wanted to see was walking distance .... I'm trying to find a negative but I fail to do so really .... best thing of all : it has roller blinds ( shutters ) which means complete silence and total darkness ( adjustable ) ...was BLISS!!! ... You have a fruit and veg shop 5 m to your right a nice supermarket 50 m to your left even a korean Bubble tea shop underneath .... restaurants all over the place ..so all good !

Florencia on Jan 2017:
El departamento está muy bien ubicado. A unos pasos del Ponte Veccio! Tiene un supermercado y tiendas muy cerca. Apenas llegamos nos dejaron un mapa con lugares para recorrer que nos fue de gran ayuda. Tuvimos un problema de corte de luz, pero vinieron a ayudarnos apenas nos contactamos. Es un buen sitio para quedarse si lo que buscan es conocer la ciudad.
