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
Le Garage Appartement
Le Garage is the 2nd flat that's managed by Matthieu and has his similar apartment next door. This ground floor apartment (with bedroom loft) is located in the interior courtyard of the building, so it's very quiet. When you enter you have the living room area and the kitchen and bathroom (with tub) at the back with low ceilings. Upstairs is a double bed which looks out over the living room area. Very clean and comfortable, it's a great place to come back to at end of a long day of sightseeing.

Conveniently located in the 11th, walking distance to the Marais and the Bastille, this area is full of cool cafes and restaurants, all of which Matthieu can expertly recommend.

Tom Bellfort on Jun 2015:

The location is great, a few minutes away to restaurants and super market and a jumpy neighborhood near Le Marais. The open air farmer's market is just fabulous. Easy access to the metro. The apartment, though small is well appointed and as it is situated in a private court yard, it is very very quiet, day or night.
Well I realize that we walked into the hottest possible weather where for the week the temperature hovered around 100F. However, i believe the weather patterns have changed and hot weather in Paris, at this time of the year, is no longer this exceptional. Some kind of air conditioner, portable, would have been very very helpful.
Most excellent!
