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
closed - Appartamento Plum
Plum is a one bedroom that has a second sleeping area sectioned off from the living space. The bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and flatscreen TV. Then, in the living space, there is a table that can sleep 6, two single sofa beds, a small kitchen area, a second bathroom, and another bedroom (not totally private) with a double bed. For a family who doesn't need loads of privacy it's a good deal in that there are still two bathrooms and so long as you don't mind opening and closing beds, enough space for all.

The apartment is in the center a few blocks from St. Peter's. The location is quiet and nearby is a big supermarket, shops, restaurants, and the number 64 bus which runs through the center to Termini Station.

Plum is in the same building as the Violet Apartment, so for groups up to 11 people, these two can be combined.

I needed an apartment near the Vatican as I was travelling with my parents who are in their mid- seventies. The apartment couldn't have been closer to it but it's still in a nice residential area with local shops and businesses dotted around so you don't feel too much like a tourist. Alessandro and Valentina were a great help to me answering my many questions. They organised collection and drop off at the airport and a private tour guide. The prices charged were reasonable. Also the two nearby restaurants they recommended had good food and were cheaper than the average restaurant in Dublin. We shopped for groceries in the Carrefour 5 minutes up the road and we used the 64 bus which is 2 minutes away. This bus will take you near to many of the tourist sites like the Colosseum and the Pantheon. I would highly recommend Plum Apartment
