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
Leone B & B
Leone B & B is a 3-room B & B, each bedroom with its own bathroom. Two of the bathrooms are ensuite, and one is private but not ensuite (it is in the hallway next to the room); however, please note that the owner cannot guarantee in advance that a guest will receive a room with ensuite bath, as she organizes the room plan according to her reservation schedule. There is a large living room/breakfast room for socializing and a small corner kitchen. The apartment is in a 1900s building in the upscale neighborhood of Prati next to Vatican City. From the building St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums are only a few blocks away.

mattress coat of paint on the wall no breakfast on the third day

Clara PASCAL on Apr 2015:

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la propriétaire du B&B (Nancy) pour son accueil chaleureux ainsi que pour les bons conseils qu'elle nous a donné pour découvrir Rome. Elle s'est rendue disponible et c'était très agréable de pouvoir parler en français avec elle. L'appartement était agréable et très bien situé.
L'équipement de la cuisine pourrait être amélioré avec la mise à disposition d'un four à micro-ondes et d'une bouilloire.

We loved everything about Nancy's B&B! First off, Nancy was amazing. We coordinated with her when we were to arrive in Rome, and she was waiting at the B&B for us. She then spent the next hour with us, helping with our itinerary, making sure we all of the 'best' in our short 2 days. Our room was very comfortable and clean, great central location (only a few blocks from the Metro) and exactly what we needed in Rome. We hope to visit Rome again someday, and will definitely be staying at Nancy's place!
Steve, and Cross-Pollinate were great - very timely on responses and great recommendations, helping sort through the many options on the website.

Perfect location 2 blocks from the Vatican. Sparkling clean. Plenty of room. Well stocked kitchen. Comfortable bed. Safe. Simple Italian decor without being too ornate. Best price. Personal service. Actually looks even better than the picture.
Headboard on bed to match the furniture.
I was worried about finding the owner because I was 2 hours late arriving. Owner's assistant lives in the building so he checked us in. I will use Cross- Pollinate every trip. Keep up the good work.
Daniel on May 2013:

The room, the kitchen and Nacy!
For the price, nothing at all
Easy to use and a great appartment found.
