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
Robin's Cihangir Two
This beautiful flat is right in the center of hip neighborhood Cihangir, but once you're chillin' on the to-die-for balcony, you'll feel far away from the city - almost on an island.

You can see Topkapi Palace, Maiden Tower, Bosphorus Bridge and many ships passing by at any time of the day while relaxing on the couch, having some tea on the chic balcony dining table set or laying down on your Sultan's corner in the living room and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere right from your bed.

Cihangir 2 consists of two bedroom and one living room that is divided into two with curtains which is another bedroom called the Sultan's corner. As you get into the apartment, you see the bathroom right across, master bedroom on your right and 2nd bedroom next to it. Kitchen is on your left when you enter the apartment and the living room is next to the kitchen on the left. 

The apartment has a very calm energy with simple and characteristic decoration. You will find Anatolian baskets in the master bedroom and old Istanbul photos in the 2nd bedroom along with some beautiful Ottoman paintings.  The kitchen is well stocked and there is BBQ set in the balcony. 

You can easily reach any part of the city from here as you are next to Taksim square, tram, bus and ferry stops. If you do not feel like using transportation, numerous antique stores, cafes and boutiques are just steps away in this popular yet still not overcrowded bohemian neighborhood of Istanbul. 

Davide who usually greets the guests offers customized half day and full day Istanbul tours at reasonable prices for up to 4 people.
