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
Nomentana 2-bedroom
This building has 5 flats in it that are all identically restored and furnished. There are 2 two-bedroom flats that sleep 6 (with a fold-out bed) and 3 one-bedrooms that sleep 3 people each. They can be rented individually or together for large groups.

The area, although seemingly outside the center, it very well connected. There's the blue line metro nearby, a tram that runs clockwise to the Colosseum and Forum or counter-clockwise to the Vatican. It's between a few parks - the Villa Torlonia and the Villa Paganini, and despite being kind of an upscale neighborhood with lots of embassy's and important office buildings, it also has some great, inexpensive food. One of our favorites is Da Emilio on the corder of Regina Margherita and Via Alessandria - a true, old fashioned Roman trattoria, and don't miss the Gelateria Gracchi, one of Rome's best, on Via Regina Margherita.

The assistance I had via email during and after I made my booking was first class, any query was answered promptly and accurately.
Tourist maps such as those provided by the Beehive would be very useful in each residence.
Very happy, we could concentrate on enjoying Rome without worry about our accommodation or our booking, we would certainly recommend Cross-Pollinate to anyone.
Nancy on May 2015:

Bus lines right outside door, Metro five blocks away, several grocery stores with three blocks, restaurants, excellent noise-blocking windows, two bathrooms.
No bowls for cereal, no toaster or more importantly, microwave. Refrigeration in Italy seems minimal, and some explanation about the tap water would be useful. Restaurants all say it is bad, and it comes out cloudy, but I imagine it's fine to drink.
Would definitely use C-P again.
David Merrell on May 2014:

The location was great. Convenient for restaurants and not too far from rail. The security was excellent but had to go through four (4) locked doors before getting to the apartment. The apartment was roomy and clean.
The apartment experience is very good particularly if you are traveling with children because of the space provided and the fact that you have a kitchen to use. The only downside is that there is no one at the apartment to help if you have questions or need assistance in this instance. However, not too inconvenient assuming that the attendant is nearby and is responsive.
I would recommend to any one to use this service.
Rahel on May 2014:

The apartment was clean and very nice, we were really happy about it! The city centre can be reached easily and fast. We would stay there again any time.
I got to know Cross-Pollinate as uncomplicated and reliable. As soon as I go to Rome again, I will check the availabilities on Cross-Pollinate.

ease of booking, friendly hostess, clean apartment, convenient. location not close to centre but good connections. Suited our needs.
maybe a folder or information leaflet in the apartment giving details of bus routes, restaurants closeby, etc
easy and convenient to use.
Sean on Apr 2014:

Decent central location with lots of room and comfortable surroundings.
