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
Petit Kadikoy Studio
This small topfloor studio is owned by Tilly, one of two French sisters who also have the Marti Flat, also on the site. Located in the hip neighborhood of Kadikoy - which feels like a University town by the beach with a combo of cheap and fancy cafe's and restaurants, and bustling market area. It's a 5 minute walk from the seaside, in an historical neighborhood where most of the architecture is 20th century Greek style. The neighborhood is peaceful, safe and charming.

The flat has one foldable sofa bed that becomes a double bed, a small tabel for two, bathroom and a kitchenette with necessary kitchen equipment. It's nothing fancy, but for the price can be an amazing way for 1 or 2 people to experience Istanbul on a tight budget.

You can walk to Kadikoy ferry port in 5 minutes and central Kadikoy where fish market, restaurants and bars are in 10 minutes. The area is popular with local artists and youngsters, famous with is nightlife. Table and chairs standing out, every street is lively in Kadikoy. If you want to go to Sultanahmet Area or Taxim, the boats run very frequently to the European side.

The hosts are also nearby and happy to provide you information on Istanbul, restaurants, shopping and any other question you have.
