Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

For the price you cannot go wrong. Relatively close to the town centre. The rooms are clean and tidy, friendly efficient staff, a simple but adequate breakfast. However, the downside for us were the stairs, which we did not realise would be a problem! I say this as my husband had a hortific fall a couple of years ago. Part of the reason we chose the hotel was because it had a lift, but didn't realise it did not go from the ground floor (reception). The lift only goes from the first floor! Unfortunately the breakfast room is in the basement, so more steps to negotiate. For people with mobility issues I cannot recommend this hotel, and I feel the hotel should have made this information clear on their website.

Stayed for 4 nights over the Motogp weekend. The hotel is close to the train station which is great but a long way from anything else. The room was clean but unfortunately the bed was rock hard so made for uncomfortable sleeping. The staff were excellent though and the receptionist gave us all the information we needed on how to get the bus's to get to the circuit. Breakfast was limited though and the breakfast room very small.

Don't be put off as you approach the hotel as the street could possibly mislead your first impression.Two star hotel with five star staff. A basic hotel, very reasonable prices were our impressions and while true, the standards of the hotel were very high. Rooms were kept spotless and the bathroom would not be out place in a much higher rating establishment. The breakfast area served well presented food very much in keeping with the hotel, simple continental style but nice variety. There is a lift but you have stairs to climb to get to it.
The receptionists knew the area well and all staff were genuine. So many places they will switch on a polite smile but these were not like that. Portuguese are very friendly and hospitable we love the country. For a quiet hotel without frills but comfortable beds etc and near to station, shops and bus stops we would highly recommend it.
It is a40 min walk to the beach but 19 mins or less to a long pleasant promenade.
One more thing, it's easy to get confused in the twisting streets. We got lost and walked miles to find a place that we found out was just around the corner. The Cafe Brasil within 100yrds has good food as does Dona Barca, a bit further away 20 mins but you will find a fabulous fish / seafood restaurant.

I have stayed twice at the Made Inn and twice, I had a very enjoyable experience. I did have doubts when I entered the hotel, particularly since their house style is dominated by flashy Easyjet-style orange which stands out. Luckily the orange only lingers around the reception, once in the room, there isn’t much orange theme left and the accommodations are all nicely decorated and even feature neat wooden floors. I am at most impressed with the staff. They are unsophisticated, friendly, are there to help and actually listen to you and have a chat from time to time. I often compare with similarly classed hotels or hostels. The hotel manager should really be proud at their helpful staff, they deliver and really add value to the guest experience. Another plus to add to the breakfast. All in all, great place to stay. Centrally located. Real good value for money. The website is easy to navigate and room deals can be booked quickly. I recommend this hotel strongly!

This hotel was located about a 5 minute stroll from the busier parts of Portimao.
Hotel rooms are small and basic but very clean. Bathrooms are the same.
Hotel is very quiet. Breakfast was basic.

Olá! Obrigado por partilharem a vossa opinião. Temos uma fantástica relação qualidade-preço, temos pormenores de decoração muito bons (como poderão verificar pelas críticas), esforçamo-nos por tratar os nossos hóspedes da melhor maneira e a recompensa são as maravilhosas críticas! Estamos localizados no centro de Portimão, junto da rua de maior comércio (com muitas lojas), perto do centro comercial e a 5 minutos a pé da zona ribeirinha, onde há animação cultural. Estamos a 2,5Km da Praia da Rocha, para onde se poderão deslocar a pé, de carro, de autocarro ou numa das nossas bicicletas de aluguer. Quanto ao pequeno-almoço, em nossa opinião (e de outros hóspedes) é um buffet bastante completo para um hotel de 2 estrelas, visto que tem ovos, salsichas, fiambre, queijo, pão variado, cereais, chás, café, leite de vaca, leite de soja, sumos, iogurtes, fruta, bolos e doces. Temos classificação de 2 estrelas, mas queremos proporcionar aos nossos clientes um serviço 5 estrelas! Conheceram os nossos quartos temáticos, com uma decoração especial? E divertiram-se na nossa Nintendo Wii gratuita? Esperamos que sim e que possam voltar para experienciar outros serviços. Cumprimentos. Joana Silva. Hello! Thanks for sharing your opinion. We have a fantastic value for money, we have very good decoration details (as may be verified by other guests critics), we strive to treat our guests in the best way and the rewards are wonderful reviews! We are located in the center of Portimão, beside the street from greater trade (with many shops), close to the shopping center and 5 minutes walk from the riverside area, where there are cultural events. We are 2.5 km from Praia da Rocha, where you can go on foot, by car, bus or in one of our rental bikes . As for breakfast , in our opinion (and other guests) is a comprehensive buffet for a 2 star hotel as it has eggs, sausage , ham, cheese , assorted breads, cereals , tea , coffee, milk cow , soy milk , juices , yogurts , fruit , cakes and sweets . We are a 2 star hotel , but we want to provide our customers with a 5 star service! Did you met our themed rooms, with a special decoration? And had fun in our free Nintendo Wii? We hope so and hope you can get back to experience other services. Greetings . Joana Silva .

We spent 8 days in the Made Inn this September, as budget travellers with high expectations.
The staff was very kind, friendly and helpful, as well as organized, reliable and polite. They responded on any request quickly and efficiently.
We were very satisfied with the cleanliness: The bedroom, bathroom and the floor was cleaned precisely and fresh towels and toiletries provided daily. - Even we left the room late!
By the way: the hotel is very safe, and the staff works honestly.
The breakfast was plenty and sufficient. Basic buffet table, but anybody could find something to like.
The location is a bit far from the Praia da Rocha beach, but if you don't mind walking, it will take 30 mins. Otherwise get a bus, or rent a bike from the hotel on a fair price. The train and bus station is nearby, in case you would like to visit other sightseeing by public transport.
We would definitely recommend the Made Inn for budget travellers, who needs a nice clean place and good service.

I would NOT recommend this hotel. We arranged an airport transfer from Lisbon airport providing all information necessary location, flight number, arrival time etc.

We arrived to find out after several hours the hotel had provided incorrect information (wrong airport) to the transfer company.

I then proceeded to contact the hotel with a complaint expressing my concern of wasting hours of our time and now left with the dilemma of finding a way to the hotel. A refund was requested for the first nights stay and the hotel had agreed to provide a refund on the day of our arrival.

We contacted the hotel the next day requesting a refund as we cancelled the rest of our stay. The hotel was in denial of confirming a refund and denied giving the incorrect information to the transfer company blaming the unfortunate event on us.

CONCLUSION
This bad review was partly due to the hotel sending a transfer to the wrong airport and leaving us stranded, having to book into a hotel nearby.

I would not recommend this hotel as they will not co-operate with you as a customer if you are unsatisfied with their service. Nor will they work with you to provide a solution.

Dear guest, Regarding to your review, since the beginning we tried to help, managing a transfer service from Faro airport to Portimão. In any circumstances we were informed that your airport was Lisbon. At the check-in day, and after we found out that you were at Lisbon airport, 30min after we managed to find a solution with another transfer to Portimão, solution that you declined since the price was different from the first transfer. As we informed you, note that it has to be, of course, a different price because the distance is also bigger. Since you no longer would stay the first night with us, we tried to talk about the refund the next day of your arrival however on the second day of your reservation you tried to cancel all the reservation and didn’t show up (note that this reservation was not made directly with us, but with a partner, so we had to respect the special conditions of the booking site). We assure you that every guest is important and special to us, we try everything to help in all situations before, during and even after the stay to make the best experience for all. Regards.

The hotel is renovated, in a good location. Even that is the old town, free parking spaces are easy to find. The front desk staff extremely helpful and friendly (A + for them). Also, Mrs. Housekeeper is a wonderful person, always with smile on her face - many thanks :)
Personally, if I'll return to Portimao (rather yes), I choose Made Inn Hotel.

Advantages:
- very clean bathroom
- very good service (Restaurant, Reception)
- everything was above standard

Regards, AKan.
