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

Theresa on Feb 2017:
Andrew was very helpful and super prompt with every communication. The flat was a perfect base for us to explore London and points west as well. More relaxed than very central London but right on the District line, which gets you to pretty much all the sights. All the things travelers need were in the flat, even a clothes rack and two clotheslines, indoor and out. Arrival was very smooth. We wold recommend this stay for a couple all the way up to a family of 5 like us.

We enjoyed our stay at this flat, which was in a very convenient location, easy walking distance to several tube stations. Andrew was very easy to communicate with and the information before our arrival was comprehensive and helpful. We asked for the extra beds to be made up and everything was done as requested. The flat is probably best suited for a couple as the bedroom is in the centre of the property, with access to the kitchen and bathroom through the bedroom. This is clearly shown on the floor plan and was not a problem for us, but is worth noting. Would happily stay here again.
Tiffany on Jan 2017:

This is a basement apartment with close proximity to shopping, restaurants, and public transportation. Though small, the kitchen and bath appeared recently remodeled and were nicely done in white cabinetry and tile.
The apartment was cold upon entering and took some time to heat up, first time to London, so perhaps this was not unusual.
