If you already decided to visit Mumbai there are sort of thing you must have known till now; the transfer is a big deal, traffic and train and bus and auto rickshaw and blah blah ... so you should know the difference of staying in South Mumbai (town) and suburbs like Central Mumbai or Bandra.

Kiran and Ali are excellent hosts! They are a wealth of knowledge about the city -- from food recommendations to tips for taking the train and buying a cell phone plan, they were patient and thorough in answering my hundreds of questions. A good welcome to India.
The apartment is clean, modern, and welcoming. Having WiFi access and drinking water was a huge plus in an otherwise crazy city. Transportation from the apartment is abundant -- taxis queue outside and the local train is one block away. Kiran even helped me negotiate a fair rate with drivers.
Also, they give each guest a personally designed map showing the locations of popular attractions and favorite restaurants. Super helpful for getting around, but also a nice memento of my trip!
Kiran respondet to all of my emails and guidet the taxidriver to
the location. The aparthment is clean and nice. Ali and Kiran
were perfect hosts! The only disadvantage was that the apartment had no daylight.
Had a wonderful warm welcome to India from Kiran and Ali. Arrived at gone 2am and they were both up waiting for us totally unphased by our late arrival. So helpful and their personalised map of Mumbai was more helpful than the lonely planet for top tips! Flat is beautifully clean and tidy and the room is a cosy and peaceful retreat away from the madness outside. A lovely authentic stay in a beautiful country.
Absolutely awesome hosts Kiran and Ali, very helpful and courteous. Guided the taxi to location and saw us off too. Good location, pretty quick by taxi to Fort/Colaba/Kala Ghoda and also not too far to the north (Bandra etc.). Really nice place among the hustle and bustle of Mumbai - great shower and really nicely presented room - along with your own map of Mumbai! Also...never ending drinking water was a massive plus. Definitely recommend for any period of stay!
We really enjoying staying hete. Kiran and his cousin are very courteous hosts and have good suggestions! We really enjoyed eating on the rooftop terrace overlooking the sea, Gateway to India and the Taj hotel! The room was fne, very secure as you can lock it completely yourself. It was very interesting to wake up to the noises of the neighbors in the building, much more real than waking up in an airtight air conditioned room in a hotel! This way you get a real taste of living in Mumbai!
Kiran and his cousin are very welcoming and willing to help you if it's (website hidden) apartment is clean and very well located. Near the train station and not far to chow patty beach by walk.
It's a great experience and we love to visited mumbai during a week.
We had a very nice stay at Kiran's and his friend's place. The room was perfectly prepared for us. Surprisingly the room has no window, but maybe it is better like that - you can avoid noise and smog from the streets. I'd have been nice if he could have spent some time with us too discussing, exchanging and so on...
Thanks Zsuzsa and Roman for your nice comments. The room actually has two windows, which are closed because the guests use Air-Conditioner, and if not they
can open the window anytime. I wish I could have spent more time with you, but as I had mentioned to you I was little busy with my family problem at that time.
Staying at the "Pantheon" in Mumbai was a fantastic experience. It is close to many of the sights and experiences of Mumbai and Kiran and his cousin are really helpful. The map they provided was excellent, and the best food we had in Mumbai was through their recommendations.
Traveling as two females, we initially we're reluctant to book through Air BnB but the previous reviews didn't disappoint. Kiran and his cousin were very accommodating and we felt very welcome and safe.
Kiran and Ali were perfect hosts! Kiran responded to all of my emails and even helped me with my luggage upon arrival. Ali was gracious enough to give me a tour of the condo and even a map of Mumbai! The condo is in a prime location, very clean, safe, and cozy! I recommend staying at The Pantheon!
Great place and great hosts. We were warmly welcomed by Kiran and his cousin. They were always helpful.
