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
Les Halles Studio
Les Halles studio is a cozy studio just north of the "Forum des Halles" , the area where the general markets were until the beginning of the '70s. Now that area is a nice green garden with a shopping 'forum' underneath, as well as one of the biggest metro hubs with several lines intersecting. Just a few steps off the pedestrian district of Châtelet, packed with shops, cafés etc.

Staying in this area means you'll be able to walk to many sights (Notre Dame cathedral, Louvre Museum, the Marais district, L'Operà, La Fayette) and live in a authentic Parisian district -- super central but still off the beaten track!

The studio itself is small but functionally furnished with a kitchenette and double sofa bed. Bright and calm, it's situated on the top floor of a six floor building (elevator goes up to the 4th floor). Nice view on the lively pedestrian rue Montmartre.

Please note: Les Halles studio, also on our website, is located in the same street.

Reviews
anonymous on May 2013:

This is a very cozy studio apartment with everything one person or a couple could need. Nice view of the street, nice kitchenette. Wonderful vintage building and great little elevator to the 4th floor. Only 2 short flights up to the apartment. The bed is a pull out but very comfortable and when it is out it takes up most of the living room.
We have used Cross--Pollinate in Rome and Paris. We have always been very happy with their service and their wonderful apartments.
