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
Appartamento Piazza Navona
This two-bedroom apartment is right at the beginning of via dei Coronari, a cute pedestrian street that begins just at the top of Piazza Navona, with little shops, cafes and a great gelateria (Gelateria del Teatro). In about 30 seconds you can be at Piazza Navona from the apartment building.

It's on the 3rd floor (with elevator) and has two bedrooms: one with a queen-sized bed and a single, and one room with a French double bed (120 cm wide). In the living room is a dining table, TV and a double sofabed. There's a full kitchen and a bathroom with shower.

It's all in good shape, has exposed wood beam ceilings and gets lots of light and air. You really can't do better than this in the historic center at this price.

Su situación es privilegiada

Overall we had a great stay at this apartment. It’s in a wonderful area with many great shops and restaurants within an easy walking distance. The front bedroom was a good size and easily slept myself, my husband and our two small children (one in the single bed and one in a baby cot). Another couple used the second bedroom and said it was a decent size and comfortable. We did not use the pull out sofa. The main living area was very comfortable and bright with large windows. The owners were accomodating when our train broke down and we were 1.5 hours late for our check in (we called ahead and arranged a new time).
Our only complaint would be that the kitchen could have been better stocked (the pots and pans were quite old). We also had to buy our own supplies for washing and drying dishes, which was fine as there is a small grocery store about a five minute walk away.
A great and easy experience making the booking! Staff were very helpful in making recommendations and answering questions.

Location! The apartment is situated in a beautiful part of the historical centre and is quit comfortabel and spacious. Good value for money.
Comunication(about check in/out) Little attention to details. For example: not enough toilet paper, no iron as mentioned in description, no proper window covers in the small bedroom, smell in the kitchen, some kitchen supplies were missing like dishwashing stuff. We had a bad experience with a forgotten stuffed animal that got thrown away by the cleaning person. Their handeling of this situation was very unconsiderate and uninterested. The same way as they seem to treat the apartment I guess.
Admin on 11. Feb 2013:
We contacted the owner a few days after your stay and inquired about the stuffed animal, but if things are left behind, they usually aren't saved unless someone knows it would need to be sent (like a phone or something). I'm not sure how well they responded in English and whether it didn't seem interested simply because of English not being a language they are all that wonderful at, but they did tell me that something was broken as well during your stay and they didn't request any damages.
