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
Telegraph Hill Apartment
With its own independent entrance beneath a beautiful family home, this flat is large and modern, with a flat-screen TV and full cooking facilities to allow you a cosy evening at home after a day of sightseeing. One double bedroom plus a large living room with a sofa bed for an extra guest or even a couple of children. Direct access to a charming shared garden. Lydia the owner can come and collect you from the bottom of the road with her car if you don't fancy the uphill walk with your suitcases. Just at the top of the road, within the Telegraph Hill park, you can enjoy some of the most breathtaking views of London to be found. Or a lovely game of tennis on the communal courts. This is a creative residential community, with a large student presence thanks to nearly Goldsmiths art school.

New Cross also lends itself to socialising, the local bars are full of art students from nearby Goldsmiths college, and hipster east london is just a few tube stops away in Shoreditch. Twenty minutes to all the tourist hotspots, in central London, or a five minute bus ride in the other direction will lead you to the delights of Greenwich, home to the Royal Observatory, London's only Planetarium and the origin of "Universal Time".

British Rail train one stop to London Bridge, or the London Overground tube line which connects easily with the Jubilee line into central London. Ten minutes away from leafy Greenwich, where you can catch a river boat all the way down the Thames and up to Westminster itself.

Gatwick airport extremely accessible with the Gatwick Express train, changing once at Croydon station.
