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
Trebbio Uno Suite
The apartment is located on the ground floor of Palazzo Da Magnale, an elegant, historic 16th century building, located in a superb area of Florence, a few steps from Duomo and a short walk to the Ponte Vecchio. It is in fact situated in one of the most suggestive and most magnificent squares in Florence, Piazza Santa Maria Novella.

In the same building, on the first level are the Gold Suite, a wonderful apartment with 2 double bedrooms, and Crystal Suite, an elegant open space apartment - both managed by the same owner.

The apartment (around 60 square meter) is a wonderful, elegant and bright open space, composed by an hallway which goes to the living area, a modern and well equipped kitchen (oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher) with a dining table for 4 persons. The living room is furnished with a comfortable double sofa bed, an armchair and digital TV.

On this floor you find the first bathroom, modern and elegant, with a shower

Through a modern staircase you reach the sleeping area with a king size bed, here you find the second bathroom with wc and bidet. The ceiling is a really objet d’art! Frescoes and superb arches.

Kate on Feb 2017:

Perfectly situated for exploring Florence and truly a home away from home. The apartment was spacious and far more than you could expect from a hotel. Sara was flexible and very pleasant. She told us all we needed to know. The apartment was extremely comfortable and we loved the modern design with the historic edge. Highly recommended. Thank you Mariangela!
