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

Maria on Jun 2015:

The location was perfect. It was right in the centre but strangely enough there were no tourists so it was very quiet at night unlike many neighbourhoods. The apartment was just as it was listed, beautiful and tidy with great views on the Eiffel Tower and the Sacre Coeur, not to mention the Bourse! Everything was convenient during my stay, the location, the 30 second walk to the metro, the chic interior and of course the lovely owner. Fred is incredibly welcoming and really went out of his way to make me feel at home. I couldn't recommend a better apartment in Paris.
Everything was perfect.
Cross Pollinate were very efficient and helpful whilst I was booking my apartment.
Tommy on May 2015:

Lovely apartment with wonderful views. We liked being on top of Paris, so to speak, staying in a relatively nontouristy area but close to everything by metro or on foot. The building is very quiet and private. The apartment was spotless, the bed comfortable, the decor unique and interesting.
Not a thing, we were very pleased.
Cross-Pollinate was easy to deal with but most of our interaction with them was up front, arranging the booking. After that we dealt directly with Fred, the apartment owner, who communicated well with us, showed us all the features of the apartment, and checked in with us a couple of times to make sure everything was going well.
