Response from Raphael:
Sean unfortunately had the frustrating first-hand experience of how Rio stops functioning during Carnaval, which I mentioned to him as soon as the lock issue came up on Carnaval Sunday. Predictably, the locksmiths started working again on Ash Wednesday at noon and things got fixed within 2hrs (we usually fix things same day). I understand the frustration and I will assume the cleanliness/furniture comments -- with which I do not agree and please refer to other guests' reviews, incl. more recent ones -- are a result of this frustration. It is important to point out that at no point safety was compromised: the apartment front door falls into its lock like a hotel door and in any event there is a separate elevator lock, plus the building's 24-hour security. If a guest ever legitimately felt concerned about safety through our fault, we would certainly also help to secure alternative lodging.
