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
Bloom B&B
Bloom is a very centrally located luxury B&B. Situated just a quick walk from Saint Mark's square and the most important sights by foot, the B&B sits on a large and charming piazza and is distributed over two floors: rooms and lounge area on the second floor, a pleasant reading room and gorgeous terrace on the third floor.
The building is historic and rather tall for Venetian standards, and the interior is decorated with Venetian charm and elegance: exposed wood beam ceilings, the typical wall decoration with Damask fabrics and appliqués, and chandeliers.

There is a 24-hour reception, and each room has a private bathroom, air-conditioning, hair dryer, satellite TV, WiFi, and mini-bar. The B & B is non-smoking and a 'real' self-serve breakfast buffet with a choice of hot drinks (tea, coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate), bread, pastries, fresh fruit as well as hearty options like cheese and ham is served between 8-10 am daily in the pleasant lounge room.

On a first glance. you might think it almost looks to good to be true, but we've checked and no one's tricking you here-- it really is as wedding-cake perfect as it looks!
Most recommended for couples who want to visit this romantic city and treat themselves to a special spot. You'll feel very spoiled here!
