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
Studio Sacre Coeur
The Studio Sacre Coeur is one of a handful of properties that we offer in collaboration with Haven in Paris, a company run by an American expatriate, Erica Berman, whose family has been in the wine business since prohibition's demise, actually being one of the first recipients of a liquor license in the area.

I met a greeter of hers, Evelyn, who spent the entire day with me, taking me from property to property, showing me around, and simply being pleasant in a way that either came totally natural for her or was oscar material acting. In my opinion, the difference between a mediocre holiday and a great one is all dependent on the people along the way: their suggestions, their insights, and their ability to make you feel welcome. In that regard, Haven in Paris stands way above the rest (no offense to any of "the rest" here). but it's true - sometimes the best property is easily compromised by having a lukewarm owner, or worse, their delegate who takes money, hands over keys, and couldn't care less about anything else. In this regard, Erica makes sure her greeters are well paid, well informed, good with various languages, and able and willing to dedicate some of their time.

Erica's properties are clearly top notch. They're impeccably clean, fashionable and practical for the traveler: stocked with little touches like umbrellas, basics in the kitchen that you don't want to go buy, and even a mac computer for internet access. She obviously will not tolerate any of her properties being anything but perfect and is relentless at keeping them in perfect condition.

As for the area, I was expecting less from Montmarte. I imagined it too on the fringe. Instead, i found it one of the most characteristic and charming neighborhoods of Paris, mixed with ethnicities, income levels and styles. Artsy and youthful but with soul and depth. Cosmopolitan but like a little village. Another plus is that since it's on the hill, you get great views of the city and on a clear day all the way to the Eiffel tower.

As for being on the fringe, I find that Paris is so expansive that to see everything the city has to offer, one must rely on the subway system. It's simply too big to do the city on foot, even from the most central Arrondissement. Since the studio is just above a subway entrance, and since the subway is so efficient and user-friendly, I found Montmartre to be just as well connected as any other area of the city.
