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

Teresa Tay on Jul 2017:

The location was perfect and the place was very comfortable for the family. The host was very kind and helped us with our luggages, considering the apartment was on the third floor. There was a power surged during our stay there, it was promptly dealt with.
They are very easy to deal with during planning and they responded with enquiry promptly and clear. They are very helpful. We didn't need to contact them at all during our two weeks trips in Italy. All the apartments they recommended were excellent and value for money. We will definitely recommend them to others and used them again for other places.
Abel on Nov 2016:
Great location near santo spirito but far enough that you don't hear the noise from the piazza. Great restaurants and fun cafes nearby. Great communication with staff. We got held up before check in but Giacomo was very accommodating.
Samy on Nov 2016:

This apartment is spacious and easily accommodates 6 people. Giacomo, our host, was very generous with the early check-in and late check-out. It's very close to the bus stations and few minutes away from the centre of the city. Excellent Internet.
The apartment is an old one that is newly refurbished, but some of the furniture needs revamping. We stayed for one night and we did not need the TV but a larger one is required.
