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
Honey Rooms
When I was first contacted by Honey Rooms I had a look at their site and immediately felt a strong connection between it and our hotel, The Beehive. Then, when I saw it in person and met Anna, the owner, the similarities and coincidences just kept falling into place. Maybe it was just destined that we work together!

Her place is a small, 3-bedroom B & B on the 2nd floor of a more modern building in Monteverde, a bit of a trek into the center, but not too complicated as you just take the nr. 8 tram which runs through Trastevere right into the historic center. It's not the suburbs - but it is a more residential area, very quiet and off the tourist trail. Once inside the apartment building, and in her place, it's like a mini chic-hotel - ultra-clean and simple design mixed with splashes of color and cuteness. It's got everything you'd want in a nice, 3-star hotel room, at much less money, and with a personalized service and an atmosphere that encourages you to socialize with other guests in the little breakfast room.

Anna is totally on the ball - a well-traveled professional with a keen eye for quality and good service and she knows what it's like to travel. She's clearly built her place around what she personally would be comfortable in - which is always a great approach.

Great stay in Rome at Honey Rooms. Rooms were very clean and upscale. Honey Rooms is in a beautiful Rome neighborhood, and convenient to many restaurants in the area. I stayed for a week at Honey Rooms on my recent trip to Rome, and slept great every night. Anna was very helpful in making our stay feel welcome and provided assistance when needed. You can easily walk to the bus stop and a taxi stand is a couple blocks away to get anywhere easily. The location provides a day in the life Rome experience as you are living and interacting with locals, which is a welcome change from the tourist locations. I will return to Honey Rooms in the future!
This was the second time using Cross-Pollinate to find and reserve the perfect location in Rome for a week stay. Great customer service as previously experienced!
