An airbnb reservation fell through when I showed up and the apartment I rented was occupied. I got a refund immediately. I wrote a review describing what happened and saying the airbnb rental was in a somewhat seedy area. I can see the review I wrote when I go to my reviews, but I cannot see my review when I go to the apartment listing. The host has 10 airbnb rental units. I am wondering if airbnb has deep-sixed my review so as not to hurt an active host. Do you know the airbnb policy on publishing reviews? Is it an honest policy, or is it biased in favor of hosts?
Update: I sent Airbnb an email asking why my review was not displayed. (This approach was suggested by a reader here.) It has been well over a week and Airbnb has not responded. So it appears Airbnb does censor the reviews. In this case, it declined to publish a politely worded and well-deserved negative review.
