I book an apartment at Airbnb on 5th Feb 2019 for use by my guest. Booking was from 6th Feb 2019 till 6th March 2019.

Apartment have many flows :

1. Main Gate cant be close from out side. Gate have 2 locks. one is electronic to be open by Card. One is by use of key and handle. Owner gave card for open electronic lock. Key is not given. Manual lock is not working so cant close Main door from outside. this mean if go out from apartment, have to leave the door open.

2. Aircon have water dripping and make floor flooding.

My guest after checkin report the flows to owner. owner ask to wait for 2 days for get the things repaired. Nothing has been done. My guest left the apartment next day and not report the incident to me.

I was on travel to Issan, after come back I went to Apartment and see the problem, I contact the owner ask him the problem. ask him return money.

Owner put the manual lock and close the Main door with Key lock.

I report this to Airbnb. Airbnb has send me message say that I am entitle to use Apartment till 6th March 2019. Inspite of report of the flaws and Lock by owner for main door Airbnb is maintain silence.

Do any one have Idea what I can do ????? :

The issues you mention are harldy the end of the world for a short stay.

 

I'd just put up with them, chasing up the problems with owner is not worth the hassle, it'll only frustrate you.

Airbnb is asking to return the key immidiately.
As per rule the key has to keep in apartment and then check out.
Now owner has put the manual key lock. I only have electronic key. 
I have ask them how to solve the issue of key?

Yes, but maybe he can use the apartment AND get the money back.

How to open the main door? can take police help? or go to court?

assuming you use AirBnB due to it's low cost strategy, you get what you paid for, if you expected better service should have gone to a 5 star hotel....in any case airbnb has a review system that allows you to rate the service received and warn other potential renters

Airbnb is a gamble can be good but unpredictable, only did it twice both had problems. Often not much cheaper than a basic hotel so why take the chance.

He can only leave a review when after he checks out, but he can request a refund if the listing is not what it says it is

Yeah well good luck with that 'contract' when things go wrong, they do not even have an email address that I have ever seen

If the air conditioner was leaking he should be able to use the apartment and get his money back.

69,000 Baht for duplex 2 room Apartment, is this cheap apartment?
Report the problem is BAd?
Apartment cant use due to Main door cant close and go out, leaving behind all the belongings.
