Response from Alain:

Dave,

I was anguished, after reading your review, by images of you trying to sleep while rain pelted you from the broken windows & the cold winds howled all around you from the doors that wouldn’t close, and, as if all this wasn’t bad enough, you had to shower in icy water after a miserable, cold, wet night in a derelict old building, the type that not even crack addicts would want squat.

I, therefore, grabbed my checkbook, along w my list of handymen & ran to the apt after you left only to find out that it is still the same wonderful apt that has gotten rave reviews from a ton of guests that stayed there before you. To wit:
-All the doors in the apartment opened & closed effortlessly
-Not a single window has as much as a hairline crack in it
-The toilet bowl, which you had plugged up, and the chambermaid unplugged for you, is working fine & the flush is functioning properly
-There is hot water in the shower & you could have turned the dial on the electric shower head if you wanted it hotter – it was set to warm, which most people find more than adequate, given that our winter temperatures never go below 25 Celsius.
The only “problem” I found was a closet that needs to be reformed or replaced. And I thank you for bringing that to my attention.
And yes, there was a problem w my own dedicated hi-speed internet connection through no fault of my own. I pay my GVT bills on time (GVT is the highest rated ISP provider in Salvador) & have never missed one. I did notice that someone had tampered w the outlet in my apt & I was able to get this fixed right away. In the meantime, when I called you & helped you get on the building’s Wi-Fi, you told it worked fine & was very fast.
While I do like you & appreciate your pointing out what you perceive as “problems” with the apt, I have to ask myself if you were actually IN MY APT. The apt was remodeled this year & is in near perfect condition:
-New a/c units, the silent energy efficient type
-New HD 32” LCD TV
-Pay TV w movie channels
-New paint job
-New sofa
It has garnered very high praise from the tenants that were there before you, though not all of them booked through Airbnb, and I’m sincerely disturbed by the fact that you were able to trash it in your review the way you did. If you were expecting a mansion w a butler, that’s one thing, but to find so many inexistent defects is truly troubling & is causing me problems w others who have booked it & are surprised to hear what you had to say.
