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
Clover Guestrooms
Clover is one of 2 apartments managed by the Beehive Hotel. It has five bedrooms - three of which are doubles and 2 singles, with 2 brand new, shared bathrooms. The rooms are large and airy with ceiling fans to keep you cool in the summer and the doubles all have balcony windows. Decorated colorfully with Kartell design furniture and some antiques thrown into the mix, it's youthful, bright and comfortable. There is a large, eat-in kitchen that's fully equipped. There is also a computer with high speed internet access and a phone for incoming and free outgoing calls to landlines throughout Italy.

The location is about 1 block away to Termini Station where the airport train arrives and departs from and where there's metro line A which stops at Termini, the Spanish Steps and the Vatican. The Colosseum and Roman Forum are about a 20 minute walk passing through the park of Colle Oppio which was once the site of Nero's golden house and still contains the remains of Trajan's public bath house.

Check in takes place at the Beehive hotel, where you can leave bags before and after check out. We then give you the keys and you can come and go as you please.

Tons of space! Great location, very close to to Termini train station. Beautiful Balcony.
Check-in can be a little frustrating because you must check-in at the Beehive... but it's not a huge deal.
Would recommend to anyone who needs to stay close to train station.

We stayed for 3 nights and found it to be an excellent launching pad to explore Rome from. Within easy walking distance to everything you need and some great sights. VERY convenient for catching an early morning shuttle back the airport. There were crazy thunderstorms two of the nights we were there and it was a great home to run back to, warm bedroom and hot showers and a comfortable, cozy bed. It may be "budget" but it was everything we needed and more.
