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
Kempsford Flat 4
The second 2 bedroom in this building (meaning if you're a large group could be a good option to take both).

Decorated in contemporary British style, this flat was recently refurbished. There are two bedrooms, one bathroom, hardwood floors, and nice decorative fireplace. Located very closed to West Brompton Station and Earls Court tube station, it's a nice residential area to base your stay in London, situated so close to the tube stations it makes transport from Heathrow Airport very easy.

Jacqui on Feb 2017:
Great location right by Earls Court tube station. Local pubs with delicious English tucker right nearby. We are a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and fit nicely in the apartment but wouldn't want any more people, 4 was plenty. Was so nice each night to come home to a quiet place after the extreme hustle and bustle of the city. Would definitely stay again!
Rajal on Feb 2017:
The hosts were excellent. We were unable to make the original booking and they were able to change the dates without us losing out on any money. Very friendly with excellent communication.
Hannah on Jun 2014:

The flat is well equipped, and conveniently located. We had a wonderful there.
We never met the owner or the staff. Our tax driver took us to a place to pick up the key and then dropped us in front of the building. We opened the door by ourselves. Later I received an email to instruct to return the key when we leave.
I first booked another flat and received the confirmation. Later I was informed that the contract could not be delivered due to the owner changed mind. Steve from CP helped me book this flat with the same price. There were several back and forth correspondences. Without Steve's help, I would have given up. I am glad that I did not. Thanks, Steve.
