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
Appartamento Minerva 3
Located near Piazza Navona and Campo dei Fiori, this slick 2 bedroom is really as central as it gets.

When you enter the flat, there's a little entrance hallway that splits off to the living room/kitchen area. There's one bedroom with bathroom off of the living room and another bedroom with it's own bathroom off the hall. The kitchen is small, but functional, and the place is decorated with clean, modern lines and an artsy final touch.

Perfect for anyone who wants to be in the historic center - especially two couples who want their own private space but see the benefit of having some extra room to spread out into.

Clean-comfortable-well equipped-central-not too noisy-easy stairs walkup and elevator for baggage.
More iformation TV cable channels. Our greeter (name escapes me) was new to the apartment. We were the first visitors that she had let in to this building. She mentioned that she was new to it and she did not know much about the place. Improve explanation for locks and keys for both street and apartment door. Better explanation of the heating system - towel rack in the large bathroom did not heat up at all. The towel rack in the smaller bathroom was **too hot.
Enjoyable. Too brief an explanation of the locks/keys at the beginning. Better explanation of the heating. Better explanation of the garbage disposal (we put ours in the street receptacles nearby on C.V. Eman'l
