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
Mansart Rooftop Apartment
Mansart Rooftop Apartment is located on the 8th floor (with elevator) of a nice building in rue Mansard. Composed of a big living room with double sofa-bed and ancient hardwood flooring; and a bedroom with a double bed and a big closet. There's an open-space kitchen with living room area. The sleeping area can be 'cut off' by a large cupboard to add some privacy. Both living room and bedroom have access to a balcony, where you can enjoy an amazing view on the Eiffel tower and the Parisian rooftops.

Once dubbed "Pig Alley" by Allied soldiers of WWII, Pigalle, located on Montmartre, is one of the world's most well known areas for naughtiness. The area around "Place Pigalle" is touristed by those who want to experience Paris by night: topless shows, peep shows, and sex shops abound in the area that birthed the infamous Moulin Rouge. The neighborhood also has a rich artistic history due to its liberal, risqué attitude: both Picasso and van Gogh had lived here and Toulouse-Lautrec had his art studio here. Today one can see Salvador Dalí work at the "Espace Dali" or see the old Grand Guignol Theatre, closed in the 1960's. In contrast to this, the 9th Arrondissement is the site for the original Opera (the Opera Garnier) as well as the Boulevard Haussmann and department stores such as Printemps and Galeries Lafayette, a heaven for foodies with an entire floor dedicated to gourmets. At the north end, the 9th joins the eclectic and village-like Montmarte, home of the beautiful and imposing Sacré-Cœur, while St. Lazare, made famous by the impressionists and drunken Henry Miller wanderings, is to the West.
