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

Domingo, a northern California native, came to Paris for a long weekend and now, 30+ years later, he happily calls it home. In his funky, colorful apartment in the 3rd Arrondissement a couple doors down from the Pompidou Center in the Marais, hotspot for cafes and restaurants, he rents 2 bedrooms, one with private shower and one room that shares the shower with the owner. The toilet is located outside the room and shared between the two bedrooms.

Both rooms have a double bed (140cm) and balconies that wrap around the apartment and afford great views of sun-kissed flowers and the rooftop of the Museum of Modern Art. There is free wifi throughout and a phone with free calls to most nations. Guests are welcome to use the small kitchen to make tea and coffee and to keep simple items.

Domingo's is, like many establishments in the Marais, "gay friendly" - but by no means gay-exclusive. Everyone (except homophobes) are welcome!

Nathalie on May 2016:

The location is perfect and the room is lovely. Domingo is very nice and helpful.
The elevator was behaving strangely and I thought I might get stuck at some point (although, of course, this is not Domingo's fault - it was due to renovation work going on in the building)
As usual the booking went flawlessly
Joe Nicholson on May 2014:

I loved my stay at Domingo's. The room was great, the location was great, and Domingo was a great host. I really enjoyed conversing with him and appreciated all of the advice that he had.
I though Cross-Pollinate was very convenient and helpful.
Jacinda on Dec 2013:

The location is perfect - central to many tourist spots. The host, Domingo, was really wonderful in recommending places to see & eat and made us feel like we were staying with a friend
This was my third time using Cross-Pollinate and once again I was not disappointed. Love the service!
Mary Feldmann on Oct 2013:

Domingo was a very nice host and helpful. A joy to be with.
lighting and a little cleaner
John Berwick on Oct 2013:

It is an ideal location for visitng some of Paris's best known landmarks. Easy walk to Notre Dame and Place Des Vosges. Domingo's restaurant and museum suggestions were very helpful.
Nothing. . .
Positive experience. I would work with them on future trips to Europe.
Alice on May 2011:

The location, Domingo is a delight, the price was very reasonable.
The toilet situation bothered me but I can't complain because of the price.
