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
Mok' House B&B (500)
The name Mok'House come from the Italian stovetop espresso maker called a Moka. The owners feel it is a symbol of true Italian hospitality - it's the tool used by everyone household to make their guests feel welcomed, offering a good Italian espresso!

The moka also reflects the genius and beauty of Italian design. Combined with the Fiat 500 car and the iconic Vespa scooter, you get the name of the B&B and the themes of their rooms.

The 500 room has an ensuite, private bathroom and shower and a large bed with the open of a third bed added. The Vespa room has a dedicated, private bathroom located across the hall, and can have 2 single beds or can be made up as a large double.

Both rooms have private balconies and both have access to the amazing communal terrace - something always sought after in the center of Rome.

In the entrance, there is a fridge and an espresso machine at guest's disposal 24hrs a day. Also, the B&B has only 2 rooms and its own private entrance to guarantee all the privacy and safety needed.

The breakfast is served at the nice café just 50m from the apt. and it includes 1 coffee/cappuccino/tea, 1 pastry and 1 fruit juice. You can have it at any time and comfortably sitting at the table.

The only "uncomfortable" thing of the B&B is that it is at the 4th floor with no elevator, but the steps are small and, of course, the owners will help you with luggage when you arrive. Unfortunately, this is a sacrifice one has to make if you want to be in an historic building in the center and not be on the ground floor.

About the location:

Monti is in the heart of the city, in a very nice and characteristic area located close to Termini station and all the public transportation options that pass through, or it's a short walk to the Colosseum and Roman Forum.

The area is full of artisan shops, nice cafés, great restaurants, pizzerias and famous gelato places, bakeries and pastries. There's Panella and Roscioli bakery, that are a must, as well as one of our favorite trattorie in the city - Trattoria Monti.

It is probably the most authentic area in Rome's downtown as it keeps its real Roman atmosphere while being a tourist attraction.

I took advice from my Italian colleagues before booking Mok House - I was in Rome for a conference and my wife joined me so we could take a few days vacation. We needed somewhere better than the usual type of place you'd stay for work - something with character and style. Mok House is centrally located and within easy walking distance of Termini Station. However, we arrived after darkness and they arranged for a car to collect us from the airport and Silvia stayed late to meet us. Much appreciated. The B&B runs over a number of floors and our room on the second floor was delightful - clean, decent beds, plenty of storage, strong wi fi and great bathroom. Silvia then showed us to the roof terrace which is a real treat. Excellent views across Rome and an honesty bar. Astonishing, said my wife - not one to lavish praise needlessly. Breakfast is in a nearby cafe. Mom House easily exceeded our expectations. We stayed four days and I'd happily go back next time I'm in Rome - just waiting on the next research project.

If you go to Rome, the place to be is: Mok'house! I was there with my boyfriend and we enjoyed every minute of our stay in this beautiful, authentic, charming and cosy place. Reception and staff are extraordinary friendly and helpful and the rooms are super sweet, clean and modern. The boss is VERY hosty and generous. They have a "honest bar" on the roof: you are responsible for what you drink and pay. Check it out! The spirit of mok'house is rare and therefore so special! The real dolce vita!
Tatiana on Mar 2017:
You can choose MOK'house, because it is the perfect relationship between cost and benefit. In my opinion: Heva a excellent location, Good structure, Great service, even with good tips on what to do in Rome!
Guro on Mar 2017:
We loved this B&B in the heart of Rome - walking distance to the Termini train station, lots of historical sights, restaurants and bars. The host was extremely nice, friendly and helpful, she had even arranged so that the breakfast place around the corner opened at 5.30 to serve us breakfast, since we had an early flight. The room was charming, clean, comfortable and with a personal touch. We also loved the terrace with a view over the roofs of rome and a self-service bar. We will certainly book this B&B again if we return to Rome!

Nous avons passé 4 jours dans cet hôtel. Le personnel était aux petits soins et toujours prêt à vous donner les bons plans restaurants et visites. L'établissement est fonctionnel et agréable, très propre, déco sympathique, tout cela dans une maison qui a un certain charme. Je vous le conseil vivement !
