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
Hurlingham Mansion Flat
A comfortable mansion flat located a stones throw from Putney Bridge and the River Thames. The property is on the lower ground floor of an attractive mansion block offering both lift and friendly porter. The living room has ample natural light, wooden floors, sofas and table and seating for four.
The contemporary kitchen is open plan including dishwasher, fridge, freezer, gas stove, oven and microwave. A separate washer and dryer is located in a utility cupboard. There's a modern white bathroom with walk-in shower and two double bedrooms both with ample storage and double beds.

The location is convenient, situated in the heart of popular Fulham, a vibrant and affluent area which borders Chelsea and Kensington. You will have quick and easy access to Hammersmith, Fulham Broadway, Putney, Wimbledon and Chelsea. The famous museums of South Kensington and the fabulous shops of Knightsbridge and Chelsea are within 15 minutes by bus.

There is a well-known fresh produce market down the road on North End Road and local shops and bistro's as you walk out of your door! If you happen to be a soccer fan, Fulham has not one but two famous football stadiums: Craven Cottage home to Fulham FC and Stamford Bridge home to Chelsea FC.

A great location to take advantage of facilities in both Putney and Fulham and to watch the annual boat race if you are in town at the time. Hurlingham Park and Bishops Park are both a short walk away and are great green spaces to recharge and relax.

Susan on Aug 2015:

Location was so convenient -- right on the District Line to all the tourist sites. Neighborhood quiet and safe. Putney across bridge was great for restaurants. Fulham Castle and park was charming walk for coffee one morning. Flat was clean and comfortable. Nice big windows with shutters.
A few more towels (especially since the open shower gets water all over the bathroom floor), more toilet paper (we had to buy a pack). These are only suggestions, not complaints. We'd recommend the flat to anyone.
