Academia Contacto is located in the heart of Madrid, surrounded by 5 metro stations, in the "Bilbao" area of town. It is a central but not touristy part of Madrid and still, all amenities are within walking distance.
While I did not stay in the provided housing I did enjoy my experience taking language classes at Academia Contacto. I had never learned Spanish before and my teacher was helpful in getting my class through the basics in order to learn helpful phrases.Show details » Read more...
