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
Pimlico Big Ben Flat
A comfortable and relaxed home on the first floor of an attractive, listed period building. Simply stunning location directly behind the Tate Britain, and only a few minutes walk to the Thames river, Millbank and Big Ben. This peaceful home is neat, tidy and well presented in calm and neutral tones - no clutter nor fussy bits but everything you need to be at home in London.

The living room offers an oversized sofa, TV and oblique views of Tate Britain.

There are two light and bright double bedrooms both with comfortable double beds and built in storage.
A single bedroom is located off the living room and offers a single bed.

The kitchen is adjacent to the living room but not open plan. There is a table and chairs for four plus all machines including stove, oven, fridge, freezer and washing machine.

The all new bathroom has a large walk in shower, basin and toilet and there is a separate toilet as well.

Less than seven minutes by foot to Pimlico underground station on the Victoria line in zone one.

A baby travel cot may be provided subject to availability - please request when you book.

This home accommodates five people in the three bedrooms. A blow up aeromattress will be provided for a sixth person. If you are five people, but would like to to use the aeromattress please add this item on the booking form.

This home does not have broadband. However, we can give you free access to BT Hotspot Wifi. We can also offer an EE mobile WiFi router which you can top up on a pay-as-you-go method.

The exterior is currently being refurbished. We have reduced the rent for the period that the maintenance is underway although it does not effect the interior of this home. This is an ideal opportunity to enjoy a bargain stay in a super location, directly behind the Tate Britain, and only a few minutes walk to the Thames river, Millbank and Big Ben.

Many local shops, restaurants, traditional pubs and bars are on your doorstep.
