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
Baixa Apartment
Located between Rossio square (where the train station is - perfect for day tripping to Sintra) and the Elevador Santa Justa which connects the lowest part of Lisbon to the highest (Bairro Alto), you're really in the center of everything here and can easily walk to all the sites in the center, or use the very efficient metro system - with two stops nearby.

Large and bright with loads of windows, this two bedroom is clean and simple - perfect for families or two couples who prefer to be in an apartment rather than two hotel rooms (at a fraction of the cost too).

Can be combined with the Baixa 2 Apartment on the same floor for groups of up to 10 people.

  • no elevator
  • WiFi
  • TV
  • hair dryer
  • linen and towels provided

JAMES COLLINS on Sep 2017:

Great apartment. It looks exactly as pictured.The location can't be beat. Right next to the elevator St Justa. Loved all the activity and street entertainers on Rue Augusta just a block away. Armando was very helpful . Emailed us 2 weeks before arrival and was there to meet us on time. The apartment is beautiful and clean and well equipped. Would highly recommend.
It would be helpful to have a place to hang clothes in the 2nd bedroom.
Good experience

Absolutely fantastic location, super-large, great wi-fi.
the shower in the main bedroom needs to be fixed.
Cross-Pollinate was extremely easy to use and the apartment was exactly as described.

Great location - easy walk to all popular areas / sites in Lisbon. Very close to a bunch of amazing restaurants. Apartment was clean / modern / has AC. Great deal - book this place and you won't be sorry.
Rafael Viegas on Oct 2014:

Well, the apartment is located in a place that gave us everythig we loved about this city: the history, the people, the food and even a great beach 15 minutes away! This is a very special place downtown in a beautifull historic building. We were also very well eceived and informed about the best places to visit and to eat.
Worst of all was to have lasted as little. Was so much to do... Next time, soon I hope.

Un accueil parfait pour un superbe appartement super bien aménagé et idéalement bien situé pour visité la ville. Toutes les commodités sont moins de 5mn ce qui est génial. Lisbonne est une ville merveilleuse ou il fait on vivre et dont je suis tombé amoureuse. Alors Je vous recommande vivement cet appartement car tous les critères essentiels pour découvrir une ville aussi merveilleuse sont réuni.
Laura on Sep 2014:
ottimo appartamento , molto grande e luminoso. Pur essendo nella zona centrale (Baixa) la notte è molto silenzioso. Ben servito da mezzi di trasporto e negozi ( anche un supermercato nelle vicinanze) . Un grazie ad Armindo e Fernando

Location, spacious, clean, good wifi, modern, double glazed for quiet nights, good air con, everything needed for a wonderful stay!
I'm a pillow queen and would have liked an extra pillow, but not necessary.
No glitches! All communication clear and timely. Definitely better experience than hotel.
