Historias Hiladas Madrid: what do users think?


Diana Elaine Miller: Fantastic class! I went with no knowledge of sewing and very quickly grasped the basic understanding. Very small class size makes it easy to ask questions and not feel overwhelmed. Great instructor. She is very skilled and has some lovely examples to see in the workshop. Her prices are more than fair and I will definitely be going quite frequently. 100% recommended.
Response: Thank you!! It was lovely having you here Diana! We are so glad you found in sewing a new way to have fun and make new friends! See you very soon!!!

Wairimu Magdaline: Beautiful country

Loreto Martínez Alía: It is the best sewing academy!! Teachers Laura and Karu know a lot about everything, and they are very patient. Thanks to them I have been able to make the most beautiful project a reality: a wedding dress for my best friend, and another for a guest. Totally recommended ♥️
Response: Thank you Loreto!! It has been without a doubt a projection and a super memory for us to see you work on the suit (the suits!) and that you tried on the bride at the academy. Making your friend's outfit in her day is not easy! Congratulations! Nothing can resist you anymore.

Susana: The classes at Historias Hiladas are the best I've attended so far. Caru is a very good teacher and very creative. In these classes I have learned to make lingerie and I love to wear my underwear made by me :) You won't regret it!!
Response: Thank you Susan!! With Karu it's easy to get hooked on lingerie! Thank you very much for your words, we love knowing that you like it!

Pilar Hinojosa Coarasa: A perfect academy to start sewing from scratch! I didn't even know how to thread the needle and now I do some really cool projects. Very professional and close teachers. A great atmosphere to spend the afternoon 😊
Response: Thank you Pilar!! You are phenomenal and you always do beautiful things!!! We love to see your progress!!

Saray Pedraz Ramirez: After looking at several sewing academies, in the end I opted for Historias Hiladas, and it was a success!!! I've been with Karu and Laura for a year, and I couldn't be happier, I started from scratch as a patatero and this summer I've been able to wear several clothes and above all they've given me the security of doing things at home. They are super patient, charming and have made things a lot easier for me with my schedules at work and the atmosphere at the academy is very nice. For me it is a disconnection from the crazy daily routine. Thanks girls, and I've already booked a place for next year and a summer to think about new projects, get ready Karu :P
Response: Thank you Sarah!!! How happy you make us with your words! In a year you have come a long way, you can be super proud!

Miriam: I had no idea how to sew, but thanks to Karu and Laura I have managed to make my own projects. I'm delighted!! They advise, guide, teach and most importantly, you feel at home. I will continue with them in September.
Response: Thank you Miriam!! We are glad that you feel comfortable, for us it comes first! See you around summer!

Carla G: I did the Mara bralette course with Karu from @Studiocostura and I learned a lot! It is the first time that I dared with a lingerie garment and I liked seeing how the piece was constructed. Karu had many options when it came to choosing materials and even helped me step by step with fittings to try and get the size right before cutting the gorgeous stretch lace. You leave the class with your garment ready and on if you want! If you like sewing, have experience using the sewing machine and want to learn something new then this is your course. Thank you Karo!
Response: Thanks to you Carla!! We are very glad that you liked it and we hope that it will be the beginning of many more lingerie items! You'll see how hooked!!! A hug!!

Nerea Jiménez Funcia: After having gone to two particular cases to learn how to use a sewing machine (I did not know anything) I can say and I am delighted, with Laura I went to the classes and I decided to make a beautiful Totebag in the course of 4 hours with Karu. Surely the thing does not end here and we continue to see, because it is sooooooooooooooooooo to learn! 🤗
Response: Thank you very much Nera! Both you and your sister are lovely and we hope you have become hooked on sewing!! Thanks for the pictures! It has been perfect for you!!! Be proud that in no time see what you've done!! Lots of kisses for both of you!

Nuria Pérez Méndez: I recently attended the introductory sewing course and the truth is that I couldn't be happier! Sewing is a complex task but thanks to teacher Laura everything seems easy. I have learned a lot and I liked it so much that I will take some intensive classes😀
Response: Thank you Nuria! With you it's nice! See you soon at sewing classes!

Tricotosas & Punto: what do users think?


Stylish Brows: This is an excellent place if you want to learn how to knit!!😍 I have learned to knit and I am very happy! I live in Miami and I had doubts at first with the Online Course, but the videos are very clear and they explain everything step by step. I had never knitted before and it has helped me a lot in this quarantine, knitting has helped me feel calm during the times we are in right now and happy of learning something new, I’ve done many lovely pieces so far and feeling very proud of myself😃 if you wanna learn how to knit go for it! But do it here because you’ll learn the right way. Overall very pleased with the experience. Thanks for your courses, Greetings from Florida! - -Leslie
Response: Leslie, thank you very much for your comment, your evolution has been very surprising and we are pleased that despite the language you were able to follow the course through the videos successfully. She has been a student eager to learn and has achieved her goal. Congratulations! Any questions do not hesitate to write to us. Sincerely Knitting and Knitting

Gabriela Fdz: I followed the course online since I live in Denmark and it was a great experience! Super nice teacher and the course contents were easy to learn :)
Response: Thank you very much for your comment Gabriela. Greetings from Madrid

Nuria de Salvador: It has been an intense course from which I have come back eager to improve. The only thing I regret is being so far away and not being able to continue attending weekly, and more calmly. Otherwise everything perfect. A great atmosphere.
Response: Hello Nuria, it has been a pleasure to share such intense days, we will keep in touch through videos so you can continue learning with the knitting machine. I hope to go to Barcelona soon, I'll let you know in time. Cheers

Mari Carmen: I am going to the course with my daughter and we are enjoying it a lot, Mirtha is a charm, very patient and very kind so I enjoy it doubly. We bought a second-hand knitting machine from Tricotosas and that's it, and for the moment it's going great, it's very good for us to practice what we've learned at home. Thank you Mirtha for your patience and kindness
Response: On behalf of Tricotosas y Punto and Professor Mirtha we appreciate your comment, we are pleased to know that you enjoy classes with your daughter, our commitment is to provide the best! Sincerely.

Inma Barea: After a week doing the intensive course in the mornings and the card course some afternoons, I can only say that I am delighted and extremely grateful, thanks to Mirtha, she is a super professional with a lot of experience, kind, friendly and a very good teacher. I have learned a lot and it has been a great experience, I will surely repeat, I recommend it 200%. Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏🙏🙏

MariaTeresa Granada: I recommend this school 100%, Mirtha is a beauty and a very good professional...

Mª JESUS VELASCO GARCIA: The machine is very good and the teacher Mirtha is a charm. Gives very good explanations. Thank you so much for your patience.
Response: Thank you for your comment, we are very happy about your interest in learning and that the explanations have been clear. For any question or doubt, we will be in contact. Sincerely

svetlana Lezhneva: The company is very good. You have to make an appointment to see the machines. And the truth is that they explain everything very well. There are courses and you can see that they are professionals. What I don't like is technical service. I wanted the technician to come to my house to install the additional border and to check both borders (I bought second-hand knitting machines and not from this company). He installed the frontura in 15 minutes he has given a short summary of the machines without doing a test point test or anything like that, he explained the handling of the additional frontura above and nothing more. I told him that it seemed to me that the machine was failing (I'm a novice and I wasn't sure if it was a defect or something else) and he told me that I have to find out from the person who teaches me how to work with the knitting machine. Total 15 minutes to install the border, two minutes of the information above on the operation of the additional border, one minute of description of the visual state of the borders and 50€ out of my pocket. Now I'm looking for another mechanic to do the actual test to see how it's working and if any problems need to be fixed.
Response: Good afternoon Svetlana, I'm sorry that it took you so long to put your review, we would have attended you immediately! You requested the installation of an additional cover that you bought second (outside of our company) The technician went to install it and for this he did not require more time, carried out the necessary checks and retired. In either case, there is no problem with the technician coming back and doing another knit test. When you want, just call us at 620 006 033 to arrange another visit free of charge. Thank you very much for your comment, your opinions help us to improve. Sincerely Knitting and Knitting

Isabel Peña: I find myself doing the Knitting Course from Chile, being the first time I decided to take a course in this modality I was scared not knowing what to expect, I just wanted to knit and understand my machine, which was super difficult for me because the pandemic issue find someone or seek information on how to use it, for which I am eternally grateful that of course I recommend Tricotosas y Punto 100% they have helped me a lot and their videos are so clear that even a child understands it. Greetings from Chile.
Response: Hello Isabel, I appreciate the trust you had from the beginning and we are pleased to see that each class understood it and put it into practice perfectly, its evolution is very favorable, we will continue with more models and we hope one day you will visit us in Madrid and get to know our school . Sincerely

Mioara Mariana Muresan Ciuciuc: I bought the machine without seeing it and without knowing how it works. While I was in the presentation workshop I fell in love with the machine (which is a bomb) and the teacher who is a saint, very professional, very patient and extraordinary. Thank you for clarifying all my doubts and being there. I recommend Tricotosas & Punto.

TEJIDOS BOBER: what do users think?


Susanna Mostaghim: I stopped by here during my trip to Madrid in July. I would definitely recommend swinging by as someone who isn't a local. I'm not the best in Spanish but the owner was really patient with me and we were able to communicate pretty well. The one thing I would note is that this is a cash-only location (unless he just said that to me as a tourist). Due to having a small amount of cash (it was my last day there), I was only able to get one of the cheaper fabrics but it worked out well. I got this beautiful blue fabric for 3,50/m and it had gotten many compliments once I made it into some garments. I wish I had gotten more of it/asked what the content was as I forgot to that day.

Bernardo Kaiser Ruiz Del Olmo: Ok

Lourdes Ibiricu: If you want to buy a quality lining, not synthetic and in a wide variety of colours, this is your place; For that alone it is worth the visit, although they have other types of fabrics, some unique

David Rubio: Great modern and old fabrics, very nice owners

Teresa Dal Re: Very good experience. Impeccable customer service. Highlight the skill with which the gentleman cut the piece of cloth that he needed perfectly. What a good professional. The truth.

pilar tevar: They have many beautiful fabrics at a great price. I always buy there and I always repeat.
Response: Thank you very much''

Julieta Galli: Small, very neighborhood, fair fabrics. But highly recommended for interlining. They have all kinds, knitted, raised, other 2 thicker interlinings that are great for tailoring, shirts. Good price

Elvira Ospina Sánchez: Good service and better prices in the area. The price difference is considerable compared to other stores: in my case I bought several meters of waterproof fabric at € 11 per mt when in other stores they charged me € 17 for exactly the same. Of the quality of the raincoat that I bought I can only say: unbeatable.

MÍRIAM CANTERA: For many years, I have found specialized material for my profession there. Always well attended and when I have had doubts, I have found help from her. A place of reference

Elo Alvarez: One of the few fabric stores that are left. They guide you very well and have a large assortment. It brings back many memories since as a child I used to come with my mother. thank you so much for your attention

IED Madrid: what do users think?


Nabih H: DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. My life's biggest regret was going to this horrible School. I went for Masters in Digital Fabrication and Media in 2019, that Masters has been discontinued to no surprise as the coordinators were a huge mess. They don't provide transcripts or certificates so your masters is pointless since no company can authenticate it, i threw away 12K dollars on this garbage....

Theresa Pfeiffenberger: Transparency to doubt - be careful !! I participated in the scholarship competition for a master's degree this year. According to the briefing, the winners should be published on the website on March 31, 2022. However, nothing appeared on that day, so I called the master's office a day later to inquire. The woman on the phone sounded like she didn't know anything about it and after 15min on hold she assured me "the winners will be announced this morning". Unfortunately, I could not find an entry again, which is why I asked by mail, they should send the link to the page, because I already doubted that I'm just too stupid to find the right page. The answer was surprising: There is no official link and I am not among the winners - there is no funding for the course I have chosen this year. So why was I able to apply for it in the first place? The whole affair seemed a bit non-transparent to me - please be careful with applying at the IED.
Response: Dear Theresa: We are sorry to hear that you have had this feeling about the transparency of the scholarship competition process. Due to a problem with the website, the results could not be published until April 6. We take note of your experience in order to improve our communication with you in the future. In this link you can check the winners. https://www.ied.edu/uncategorized/blog/international-scholarship-competition-master/68780 We thank you for your interest in the process and we apologize for the inconvenience that has caused a misunderstanding. Best regards,

Maicol Herrera: I made in 2018 the master Fashion Management and and I was surprised by the lack of technology and new teaching methodology. In a few words, it was like going back to the fashion school at the beginning of the century, sitting in a chair to listen to theory where the most technological thing they offered was a PDF. For that price I recommend looking for another school!

G D: Studying at IED Madrid was a great experience :) If you are looking for a professional fashion school I would certainly recommend it !!

Cristina Montesinos: I went here in 2007. In hind sight there are 3 huge red flags. 1-The program was so badly organized the students filed a formal complaint, on a specific class. The teacher dis get laid off but the class was never replaced and she later admitted that she they had insisted that she should teach it as students wouldnt be aware of her lack of knowledge in the subject matter. 2- I am from the US and now several years later I need a transcipt. The told me that they do not keep records of grades and also cant generate transcripts. 3-This is a for profit school. The dont want to educate. They are seeing it as a business
Response: ​Hello Cristina, Your case is being processed and we are currently contacting you through different means in order to find a solution​. However, if you have any other queries you can always get in touch with​​ ​consultas@madrid.ied.es​ and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Kind regards,

Regina Cuadra: For that price I recommend looking for another school

John Gutierrez: Great place to learn art! Not workshops though full on Master's programs and the like.

Alberto Ballarin: Positive: ProfessionalismGreat design school!

TERESA GUZMAN BELLIDO: My experience was not very good… In general, my class was not very happy with the Product Management Master. We had to complain about many problems (disorganization, practices, schedule changes... etc). After COVID, blended classes lost a lot of quality and there was chaos in the organization of classes and schedules. There were no trips nor was there an internship offer. The product master is very focused on purchases and very few people were able to do internships according to what we were studying. The teachers are also not good (many ex-students). I think that for the price it has, which is very expensive, it does not offer quality education nor does it give you job security. They sell you a lot of smoke.

Sofía Cuevas García: I enrolled in the Fashion Design degree at IED Madrid last year. Since the start of the course, September 2021 has been a constant disappointment. The management of the center leaves a lot to be desired. To begin with, in my class it was difficult that one day we were 6 people in class, and not because people did not go, since we were only 10 people on the list and they did absolutely nothing to be able to redirect us to other classes. This, apart from the social part, affected the performance of both mine and my classmates, the fact of being only 5 people in class makes you stagnate and do not want to give more of yourself, said by teachers of the center. Absences, regulations that the IED Madrid has which always tell you that it is imposed by the community of Madrid when they imposed it since people previously were absent a lot, that you sprain yourself and take classes online, that they run over you, that they have to operate… ALL are unjustified absences, they do not care exactly what circumstance you are in, they leave you unevaluated. They are only interested in money, I paid for the 2022-2023 course and I realized that I do not want to continue paying 12,000 euros, which for me is a lot to a center with these conditions, when not even 20 days had passed since making the deposit, they told me that they did not return all the money to me, that the tuition (2,500 euros) was kept by them. From a course that starts in September. All this was in June. Charge for something that I have not even studied. of shame Finally, add that a private university, with the money it gets from each student, is not enough to put a cafeteria in the entire center? Really, complete disappointment, I promise that going to the IED Madrid was my dream and in less than a year everything has been dismantled.

Arreglos Ropa Madrid: what do users think?


Christy Chen: I had a wonderful experience with Mariana, who is professional and friendly and offers her services for amazing prices. She helped me alter this zippered formal dress for a wedding from a US size 4 to size 0 and fixed one of the straps. I am absolutely thrilled with the result! 10/10 recommended and will definitely be coming back for any alteration needs in the future!

Cristina Vélez: Mariana is amazing! I have been working with her for a number of years and I love everything she does! Super professional, quick turn around, bilingual, unbeatable prices and she is so nice! I had a sweatshirt that I have been wanting to get cropped for a long time and I dropped it off and she had it ready for me in 3 days. I love the finished product! Muchas gracias Mariana!

Alyson Garrido: I had a wonderful experience with Mariana. She altered 3 dresses and a jumpsuit for me and all had different requirements - shortening, new zipper, taking up straps. It was a very easy and pleasant experience. The work was done impeccably and she was super responsive and speedy. Note - She works from her home, so an appointment is necessary. I neglected to read the 'about section' and was very grateful she could fit me in. I'll very happily return!

Nora Ward: Mariana is absolutely amazing! She is so accommodating and personable. She speaks both English and Spanish and helps you feel confident with the alterations she makes in your clothes. She says that her hems will be done in a week, but it is always much sooner than that. I highly recommend Mariana :) Ive been seeing her since 2021 & feel so happy in the pants she has hemmed for me. You must go to her!! She is a true gem & so kind & TALENTED. Services: General embroidery , Alterations , Women's clothing alterations , Pants alterations , Custom tailoring , Hem repairs

Inna Alpeeva: Mariana is professional and very nice in person. In addition, she speaks excellent English. I had three pieces to adjust for a better fit: jeans, a tee and a sweater. Mariana made them all in less than a week. I really liked the result and the reasonable price. I'm going to continue to work with her.

Lisa ward: I have gone to Mariana to fix a few of my clothing pieces and would highly reccomend her! She has given new life to some outfits I thought I'd never get to wear again. Also the prices are very reasonable and she's always done in good time. I'm very happy trusting her with all my clothes!

Quinten Convents De Koninck: Great service! I'm living in Madrid for a couple of months and only have a certain amount of pants with me; one of them needed a small reparation and after contacting Mariana, she immediately took care of this (for a very good price!), in a brilliant way; looks like new! She is also very fluent in English, which makes it easier for someone who is just learning Spanish. I would 100% suggest you to go to Mariana!

Isabella Skovira: Mariana recently repaired split at the pocket stress-point of a favorite pair of jeans. Not only is the work beautifully done (from the outside you can barely tell there was a repair), but working with Mariana was very pleasant. It was easy to schedule a time to meet with her and her location in Lavapies is easily accessible. Mariana speaks English and Spanish, which made doing business with her very easy for a guiri like me! Her prices are very reasonable for the work that she does. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mariana at Arreglos Ropa Madrid.
Response: Wow, I've read this as a poem. It's such a beautiful review. Thank you very much!

Claire Vittori: Mariana did an amazing job altering a bridesmaid dress for me. The turnaround time was so quick and the dress is absolutely perfect! She also speaks English and is very professional. I will be sure to use her services again in the future :)Service: Alterations

Emma Porter: Mariana repaired and reinforced wear and tear in a bunch of pairs of pants I have, she was quick, affordable, and I’m super happy with the repairs she made! I can wear each pair of pants 2-3 times longer now thanks to her. Highly recommend her services!Services: Alterations, Pants alterations

It shows that they control their business a lot and they like what they do..., and they transmit it that way. All the clients with whom I have coincided, have left delighted..., and they will return....., just like me...

Máquinas de Coser Mila: what do users think?


José Ramón Lavado Barroso: We arrived at the store with no other references than those on the internet and I must confess that they have superior service and attention. I took a machine of American origin, they not only repaired and tuned it up, but they did me the enormous favor of giving me the power adapter so I could use it in Spain. Widely recommended.

Carmen Pereira Pedreira: I am very happy with the arrangement of my machine, the store is very welcoming and Mila is charming. Highly recommended. We will buy a dream sewing machine again. Thank you!

Well-being is breathed, due to its light, color and peace inside. My sincere congratulations go to you Mila. And good luck on your long walk.

Ana Barrio Díaz: If there were more stars I would give them. I needed an urgent arrangement for a wedding, and I found two wonderful people who helped me without thinking. THANK YOU

Estudio Sampere - Spanish Language School in Madrid: what do users think?


haifa Alandas: Amazing school, very nice teachers and helpful staff. I stared my classes in September with 0 spanish and now I am B2 in spanish going C1 by the end of the month. and a lot of activities, last week we went on bicicleta tour around Madrid
Response: Thank you very much, Haifa! We are very proud of teaching students like you!

Keshia Wines: My experience studying abroad with Estudio Sampere was more than I expected. The teachers were amazing and made sure we understood the material by encouraging us to interact and review with our peers. Wouldn't choose any other school to study Spanish with. I hope that if anyone is considering attending they go ahead and make the decision to go. You won't be disappointed.
Response: Thank you very much Keshia! We are very glad that you have liked your experience!

Holly Cordray: I had a marvelous experience with Estudio Sampere Madrid. Over a month, the program improved my Spanish skills immensely, and I also had the opportunity to explore the city and other regions of Spain. The best part of my time at Estudio Sampere was my host placement: my host was incredibly kind and welcoming, and more than two years later, we still talk almost every day. As a college student, I highly, highly recommend Estudio Sampere Madrid!
Response: Holly, thank you very much for your kind words. We are very pleased and proud to receive reviews like this! Take care and come back soon!

Ananya Tiwari: I joined the evening classes a couple years ago and these classes definitely helped me get a better understanding of Spanish. I did not really know how to speak Spanish and had just moved to Spain for work. I managed to talk to the people at Studio Sampere and they immediately found me a class to join as soon as possible which was great. The teaching was also very professional and learning with other students made it easier to practise.
Response: Thank you very much, Ananya, for your kind words! :)

Ann Lewis: I have twice followed 50+ Spanish courses at Estudio Sampere and was very impressed each time by the quality of the experience. The teaching was of a consistently high standard, excursions were excellent and the arranged accommodation was completely satisfactory. I would strongly recommend Estudio Sampere. They are a small organisation who take personal and supportive care of their students. Ann Lewis
Response: Ann, hello! We are very pleased that you have enjoyed your staying with us and liked your 50+ program. We highly appreciate your review, and will work hard on giving you the same quality of teaching when you come back for the third time! ;)

Karan Bozkurt: I was diverted to Sampere by a friend of mine who took 6months of Spanish classes with them. I personally took private classes from Aida and Raquel every weekend for about 4months. Also have been in contact with Alicia throughout my course. They all were extremely helpful, very friendly and professional at the same time. Both my teachers had a customized approach for my needs. Very structured teaching method and easy to digest, with enough repetition and practice. Studio manager would also call me once a month to follow up. I had to quit in the middle for personal reasons and I was refunded the remaining course fee with zero hassle. I genuinely think good people are managing and working in this place. Good as in person, and very good in their profession. That’s a rare combination.
Response: Thank you very much, Karan, for your review! It was a pleasure for us to have you as a student. Best regards, and come back soon!

Penelope Harley: My son and I have been part of the Estudio SAMPERE family in Madrid for over five years. We have returned for classes many times from London during school holidays. I always love my group classes. Estudio provides superb individual lessons for my son. Estudio is unfailingly helpful and efficient to deal with, including offering advice on travel and accommodation. We have missed the team very much during these last months and really hope we can return soon.
Response: Penelope, thank you very much for your review. We appreciate very much your words, and we are here to teach your son more Spanish! please do come back! :)

Rebecca Powelson: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueI had an incredible experience at Estudio Sampere. I live in New York City and was fortunate enough to spend a month in Madrid improving my Spanish. The materials were great, instructors were fabulous (especially Ado) and I felt that my language skills really improved. I hope to return another time!
Response: Hello, Rebecca! It is very pleasant to hear from you! Thank you very much for your words. We have some videos where Ado teaches the most common mistakes in Spanish, pleas have a look, and keep improving your Spanish! Take care and we send you besos from Madrid!

Alex Bale: I’ve been lucky enough to attend an intensive one month course at Estudio Sampere in Madrid about 11 years ago. What can I say? Its been an AMAZING experience, one of the nicest of my life so far. They offered me an accommodation in a very central shared flat, not far from the school, with other international students. The teachers and the staff were super friendly and they provided me with all the exercises books and anything I needed to progress with my learning. The location was stunning: just a few steps away from the gorgeous Parque del Retiro, where I was spending most of my free time between classes. They were also organising extra activities such as day journeys to Valencia, drinks, social moments to share with the other students/teachers, and so on. I already knew some Spanish before starting my course, but I have to say that during those 30 days my language skills boosted in no time, especially pronunciation and new vocabulary. The difference I noticed between the boring traditional university classes and Estudio Sampere was that with them I learnt practical, daily expressions I could use in my daily life. After leaving the school I decided to move from Italy (my home country) to London, where I still use my Spanish every day for work and in my personal life. I’d love to go back to study with Estudio Sampere one day. If I only had the time I used to have 11 years ago.... :) I would definitely recommend Estudio Sampere to everyone who’s in need to learn or to improve their Spanish knowledge!
Response: Alex... Thank you very much for your words! We hope you will come back before another 11 years passed.

Anthony Faulkner: The staff here is incredible! They're very friendly, professional, and they ensure that the students are very well taken care of. The classes are fun and the professors keep the content highly engaging. I highly recommend attending if you wish to improve your Spanish or even just wish to learn more about Spanish history/culture. Even if you speak little Spanish, they will meet you at your level.
Response: Thank you, Anthony!

Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía: what do users think?


Michael Viart: This is the BEST art museum that Madrid has to offer. It is truly exceptional. My wife and I spent about three hours here and still did not get to see it all. You need multiple visits to truly experience everything. One day we will come back to Madrid and finish what we started.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended Yes …More

Vienna: Make sure to visit early, on Sunday I went at about 11am and there was few visitors there. I found out later that there was a long queue outside because it was free from 12:30. The Picasso Gallery is not allowed to take photos, which is very unfriendly. There are not many guides in the gallery and if you don't research beforehand you could get lost and walk much more than you expected. Still, it's well worth a visit.

Irwin Mier: One of the most famous art museums in Europe, the Reina Sofia has iconic works of modern art from famous painters such as Dali and Picasso. Guernica even has its own room! Other modern artists have pretty impressive art pieces hanging on the walls of this museum as well. The halls are spacious and the building itself is quite large. It’s a good place to spend a few hours in. There was a long line to buy tickets, so I simply stood outside and opened their website on my phone. I bought my tickets right away and with that, I entered the museum without waiting in that long line. Buy your tickets online if you can.

Paul S: I arrived at 10 am and left at 2:00 pm. The museum is enormous so plan on at least three hours to go through it. Magnificent museum in a beautiful building. Both Modern and classical paintings displayed, including Picasso’s “Guernica” in addition, unique exhibitions covering political repression in Latin America and the fight for freedom around the world. Extensive Spanish history rooms, I could of used even more time!

Jen S: The best contemporary art museum I’ve been to. It’s ginormous and I couldn’t go through the whole building. The exhibition rooms don’t end. It was confusing navigating the museum. The 2nd floor had the famous paintings from Picasso, Dali and Miro. Was not allowed to take photos of those paintings unfortunately. The temporary exhibits were fantastic too. If you can, come visit more than once. Definitely need multiple visits to absorb the whole gallery.

Detjona Muco: Great experience. One of the hugest museums ever been. Be prepared to walk miles through galleries inside the museum. Surrealistic and realistic art galleries. The most important, on Wednesday it had free visiting hours for anyone from 19:00-21:00. No need to pre-reserve online. You just take the free ticket and enjoy the experience.

Octavian Matei: It is a very beautiful and large museum. I really liked the expos ( Picasso, Dali, others and a lot of 'Tat' art), because it displays a variety of styles and types of art. It has 3 floors with art and a fourth floor with a panoramic view What I didn't like was the design of the museum, because if you don't speak spanish, you will get a little lost. In conclusion, I really recommend this establishment.

Adams_coffee: An incredible museum and a must go if you’re in the city. The museum is a bit of a maze but after a few minutes you’ll figure it out. Amazing architecture and of course, Guernica is just a stunning piece of art (and history). Must go.

Anca-Raluca Popescu: Very interesting museum, I think if you are interested in this kind of art you should take you time and really read about everything and maybe if you have time watch some of the short movies playing. Reminded me of The Centre Pompidou in Paris. You can also see some Picasso and Dali paintings. The entry is free from 19 to 21, but you should definitely take the free ticket online as there are 2 separate lines and the one for the people with tickets is shorter and moves way faster.

Rose: Fantastic artwork, the different rooms are well laid out and wasn’t too crowded at 11am but 2 hours later when I came out, massive queue! I like the fact that they have so many different modern art and the artists are quite varied.

TILDE MADRID-Spanish School for Adults: what do users think?


Mechele L: I was in intensive classes for four weeks at Tilde and made great progress. There's a wonderful atmosphere at this small school: professional and supportive. The teachers are excellent! The cultural program made my stay in Madrid even better.
Response: Dear Mechele, it was a pleasure having you at school. Students like you make our school special. We hope you come back very soon, you know you have your home here:)

Kevin F: I would highly recommend Tilde Madrid to any adult serious about taking a Spanish language course! This was my first experience in such a course (I'm a beginner and did 4 weeks of intensive between August and September 2022), and it definitely met and often exceeded my expectations as a beginner. I'm glad that I chose Tilde Madrid. When I first started looking for a school to do an intensive class, I noticed a handful of schools that had excellent ratings on Google maps. In fact, I almost signed up for a different school. But, after reading some of the negative reviews of the others, it seemed to me that many of the other schools in the area are predominantly aimed at high-school or college-aged learners. The pictures they post on their websites seemed to confirm this. Of even more concern, some may incentivize students to post positive reviews. Then, there was Tilde which touts itself as one designed for adult learners. As a 35 year old beginner in Spanish, I would rather learn in a environment of motivated adults than in a class full of high schoolers sent overseas by their parents for the summer or college students more concerned about socializing than learning. From this standpoint, Tilde was awesome! The students there during my stay ranged from retirement age to my age and came from a variety of countries - the UK, Germany, Switzerland, the US. I very much enjoyed the diversity of age and nationality. The other factor that led me to choose Tilde was that the guaranteed class-size was smaller than other schools. I thought this would be important for getting adequate speaking experience. For whatever reason, when I was there, I only ever had 1 other classmate which I thought was perfect. Now to things that Tilde does really well. First, the location of the school is amazing, minutes away from the Palacio Real and Plaza Mayor, right in the heart of the city. I enjoyed walking to class every day, but it's also only a few minutes from the Opera metro stop. Next, and perhaps most importantly, I found everyone from the teachers to the administrators to be very friendly and welcoming throughout my 4 weeks there. The professors are professional, yet very friendly and fun to talk with. Shout-out to the teachers I had during my weeks there: Carmen, Marga, and Elsa! Each was attentive, engaged, and seemed eager to help us learn. They were always on time and came prepared with learning activities, but were also flexible enough to just allow time for us to speak which as a beginner takes time. In general, I thought there was a great balance between conversation, grammar, and vocabulary in classes. For the intensive class, I had two 1.5 hour blocks per day in addition to the morning tea. One block seemed to have more of a focus on grammar and the other more on conversation, but in each, there was plenty of time for us to practice speaking if we desired. The morning tea idea is a really cool one. Every morning at 9 am, one of the directors, either Lola or Pilar, sits down with everyone currently at the school, usually 4-8 students, and chats about the news from the newspaper or the TV. I liked this because it expanded my vocabulary to include things from current events and because it exposed me to higher levels of Spanish learners and let me get to know everyone at the school a bit. There is free coffee and tea and the school puts out some small snacks like biscuits in the mid-morning which is a nice gesture. Finally, I found the free cultural activities to be really good. These occur twice a week and are either tours through neighborhoods of Madrid or to the major museums in Madrid. Each last 1.5 hours. Most of the tours when I was there were guided by Sonia Fernandez Matesanz who was an extraordinary guide and somehow managed to convey super interesting facts and history in Spanish to a newb like me. That said, I think the higher level learners also really enjoyed the tours. All in all, I don't hesitate to give Tilde Madrid a 5/5 star rating and would pick them again if I were to return for another course.
Response: WOW Kevin! This reference that you have written does exceed our expectations because of how generous and detailed it is. The entire TILDE team sincerely thanks you for your visit. It has been a pleasure having you at school these four weeks. You are one of those students who make school a special place because of your interest in learning and your kindness. Thank you very much again and as we have told you so many times at school: We will miss you! We wish you the best of luck in your professional career. A very strong hug and see you soon.

keith dunder: Great School!. I attended Tilde for 4 weeks , in the intensive course 4 hours per day , in Jan and Feb 2018. It is a wonderful Spanish learning environment for adults. The faculty are very experienced , and attuned to the individual level and needs of each student; the classes are very small, allowing for and promoting individual progress. And it is a tremendous amount of fun, so much so that you don't always appreciate how much you are learning. I had a distant background studying Spanish, but had not taken a class for over 30 years. By the third week, I had people speaking Spanish in my dreams!
Response: Keith, it's great that you dream of people speaking in Spanish:))))) hahaha. Thank you very much for your comment, we loved meeting you at the school. A hug!

Dragana Vagic: Learning Spanish with Ina at TILDE MADRID School has been a pure joy for me. I find my professor very experienced, friendly, patient and able to explain important details so well. I’m looking forward to every single one of our lessons! She is knowledgeable about Spanish culture and history, so I've learned a lot not only about the language but also about Spain through our in-depth conversations. With every class I'm also having fun learning grammar exercises. I can see that my fluency is improving quickly and I’m speaking Spanish at work with much, much more confidence. I live in Los Angeles but with Zoom classes I really feel like I'm part of Madrid! This school is very professional and well organized.
Response: Thank you very much Dragana. For your teacher Ina and for the rest of the TILDE MADRID team, it is a real pleasure that you are part of our Spanish community:) A big hug.

Martina Sahre: This is a really great school for learning Spanish! I have been taking classes at this school via Skype, which works really well for me. I have also been at the school for in-person classes and that, too, was a great experience. The teachers at the school are all experienced and really invested in teaching Spanish. The class sizes are adjusted, so that there are enough students to interact, learn and practice, but not too many to be able to teach efficiently. In addition, there are activities to help you practice, such as guided walks through Madrid and morning newspaper discussions; both really helpful ways to apply the knowledge you gained in class. I am really glad I stumbled across this school in a google search a couple of years ago!
Response: Martina, thank you very much for leaving your comment here. We are glad that you continue learning Spanish and enjoying your classes at a distance. It is a pleasure to have you in our Spanish family :)

Donna Sparks: I really enjoyed my week of intensive Spanish at Tilde. All communications before and during were very professional. The teachers were great and the 4 hours flew by - I really liked the review of the papers over coffee - nice way to start the day. Great use of teaching materials. Two cultural activities were included in the fees and I'm really glad we did them - all in Spanish of course, and a great way to see and learn more about the city We were a small class - just me and my husband! 110% recommend the school and went I come back to Madrid I'll definitely book more classes
Response: Thank you very much, Donna! It was a pleasure to have you at school. We hope to see you again very soon in Madrid. A hug!!

daschy kathy: I have only the highest compliments for Tilde Madrid. From my initial contacts with the team (Pilar, Lola and Rosa), my arrival and enrollment at the school, to my successful completion of both Spanish and dance lessons, the experience was extremely positive. Tilde is staffed with fine Spanish language teachers and auxiliary personnel whose knowledge of history, art, dance, cooking, etc., ensure a total cultural experience. Unlike some larger Spanish language schools in Madrid, Tilde is small enough to allow for meaningful, personal contact in and outside the classroom. Another asset: Tilde's location near the Sol Plaza is easily accessible. The school itself occupies a charming building and is comfortable and well-appointed.
Response: Thank you very much for your kind comment, Kathy. We hope to see you again very soon. We miss you!!

Stefan Thomson: Tilde is an incredible school that I would recommend to anyone thinking about spending time in Spain learning the language. The school was recommended to me by a friend, and I was not dissapointed. I had a fantastic experience at Tilde in February 2020. I booked a 1 week course at the school which consisted of 5 teaching days and 2 afternoon activities. As I was the only person with my level of Spanish (A2) at the school at the time, I was given shorter classes (with a teacher all to myself). This 1 on 1 experience was fantastic and really helped me to grasp concepts I was struggling to understand (pronouns and past tenses). This is a real strength of the school and means that you will always have a class, even if there aren't any other students in your level. The teaching at the school was fantastic. I didn't know it at the time, but my teacher, Carmen, has written Spanish language learning books-I think this exemplifies the quality of teaching on offer at the school. Lessons were fun, interactive and engaging. The small class sizes, capped at 4, mean that studying at Tilde is a different experience to studying at different language schools. There are also many other activities on offer at the school. I took part in cafe y prensa activities every morning. We would have a coffee and chat whilst discussing the headlines in the day's newspapers. This was an excellent opportunity to improve my conversational Spanish skills. I also attended 2x cultural tours of the city (Prada Museum and Literary Neighbourhood). Both tours were extremely interesting and allowed me to gain an insight into the culture of the city whilst practicing Spanish. The tour guide, Sonya, is so knowledgeable about the history of her city, speaks slowly to aid understanding and ensures all tours are enjoyable. I would definitely recommend taking part in all extra activities if you visit the school. I also booked accommodation with the school. I stayed with a lovely host family for a week and was able to practice Spanish with them at breakfast time and later in the evening. I had desk space to complete my homework and was located very close to a metro line. I really did have an amazing experience learning at Tilde. I will be back in October. I enjoyed it that much. The school has such a lovely, welcoming atmosphere that it's impossible not to become attached. I couldn't give this school a higher recommendation. A hidden gem!
Response: Dear Stefan, thank you very much for your very detailed comment. It was a pleasure meeting you at school. I hope you visit us again soon. A hug:)

John Kellner: I was fortunate to spend 2 weeks at Tilde earlier this month. My goal in enrolling there was to try to reacquaint myself with the Spanish language, which I had studied in school 40 years ago, but had not spoken, read or really even heard since then. During that long lapse, I had forgotten most of what I once knew. I picked Tilde over the other language schools I considered because of its focus on teaching adults, and because I hoped that due to its small size, it could provide a student like me with more individualized attention than I might receive in another setting. It also happens to be located in an attractive and central part of Madrid, a very beautiful city. My experience at Tilde was fantastic. Each day I had lessons with two of the profesoras there. Not only were both of them great teachers; they were also an absolute pleasure to spend time with and come to know. They were very adept, dedicated, patient, persistent and fun. The Spanish language book upon which they base their lessons is intuitive, clear and easy to follow. This isn't to say that the work was not hard for me - it was (including serious daily homework). But I looked forward to my lessons each day, and I missed them and the teachers when my time there was over. I should also mention that the Tilde support staff was always responsive, gracious and helpful, and the guide who lead the cultural activities was extremely skilled and knowledgeable, and a great teacher of Spanish history, art and literature (among other topics). I strongly recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn Spanish, or to hone or improve upon language skills they already have. It was just a great overall experience.
Response: Thank you so much, John. It was great having you at school. I wish you the best and see you soon :)!

Dan Hendry: Tilde Madrid is an excellent small Spanish school with excellent supportive teachers. I chose them for their location in Madrid, and the medical spanish course which is something quite rare. Every morning I had 4 hours of classes over the course of 5 weekdays and the hours flew by as it was so enjoyable. Discussing the news of the day over a coffee every morning is a great touch, as are the included excursions in some of the afternoons which are of a high quality and adjusted to the level of the students who attend. Very highly recommended!
Response: Thank you very much, Dan. We are glad that you enjoyed the Spanish course. Your visit to our school was a pleasure for us. We hope to see you very soon! A hug

Academy don Quijote: what do users think?


Verena Barusic: This school is located in the city center, it is a beautiful building. I was very lucky with my teachers, Paloma and Amanda, we were only three students, so I could improve a lot. The oral classes in the afternoon should be organised in another way. Two levels were mixed (A1/A2). In the afternoon/in the evening/at the weekend the school did not offer any activities. It was very tough to meet other people.

Marche' Maine: I withhold my recommendation of this school and advise others to read all the reviews with healthy criticism. My primary complaint with this school is the obvious disregard for your proper placement in a level of Spanish class. I was placed in a class with the majority of students who had a greater capability in speaking Spanish so the professor accommodated that higher level for the other students. I was continuously left behind in understanding and became increasingly frustrated. I became a dead-weight on the other students, that is neither fair nor correct. It is bad a pedagogy. The professors were very nice but failed to provide a preparation list of new words to learn and did not slow down AT ALL to explain context. As others have said, the text book is used very, very quickly if at all. Don Quijote seems just wanting to gouge you for 45€ There is no linear process in the teaching which makes for terrible confusion and frustration. That is not good pedagogy. I was told to wait for after the first day because it is "normal". Also, I was told that if I moved class, I would waste another day taking a test. That is not language instruction, that is test taking. It not normal to waste 1/5 of your experience because Don Quijote failed to do proper placement. When I made mention to the office manager Pedro he attempted to blame me for doing well on the placement test even though I told them I can understand the gist of Spanish but need serious help in speaking Spanish. The conversation class (which is extra € of course) was less conversation but more ask and tell. There were too many people in the class to have successful dialogue skills. Don Quijote seems to be a business scheme, one that works aggressively to sell you a product then fails to deliver properly. I am a retired professional and have experienced quality educational programming and content in my career.

Munira Reed: This is a wonderful school in a great setting. I have attended for one or two weeks every year for a number of years. The teachers are outstanding, I have found them to be knowledgeable and flexible with different levels of learning. Very patient with all personality types. I especially enjoy the variety of ages and countries of origin I find here.
Response: Thank you very much, Munira!! We're very happy you enjoyed our school!

Justin Chairez: Due to the ongoing global pandemic I will not be able to attend the school but have still had a unique experience none the less. I write this as a warning to other looking into traveling abroad and wanting to gain a grip of the culture of the world - beware of this school and its little willingness to work with you. As I am sure all of us have felt in these uncertain times, the global situation of the world has been continuously changing from week to week, if not from day to day. While being in talks with the school for the past few weeks, mainly due to an email response coming to me once a week if I am lucky, the school has been unwilling to refund me the full amount I paid in tuition because for some uncertain reasoning its policies never updated with the time. While it is true the school offered to hold my money to let me use it for a later time as well as take online courses, these so called 'options' appear to only benefit its money eccentric approach. Seeing how I am being treated through emails makes me glad I will not be attending this school if this is the manner in which students are treated

Mari Schindele: We were very disappointed with nearly all aspects of the program, with one exception: the additional private lessons we had booked. Our son liked his private lessons very much and found them useful. His regular classroom teacher was nice, but the classes weren't useful because he was placed in a level that was too low, and the class duplicated his IB Spanish class that he had already taken. There were many other problems: 1. We paid 89 euros to have him picked up at the airport, and the pickup service never showed up. He had to pay extra to take a cab. 2. His hostess didn't talk with my son at all. She put his food in front of him and then retreated into her room to watch TV. We had asked to have him with a host family so he could practice his Spanish, as advertised on the website. He didn't get to do this at all. She also served very poor-quality food (frozen food that wasn't heated enough), and there wasn't enough food. 3. We were told by the salesperson on the website that everyone in the program would be about our son's age (18), but in fact he was the only teenager in a group of 30-year-old businesspeople. We were very disappointed with our experiences with Don Quijote and would warn against them.
Response: We want to express our sincerest apologies for your experience with us in Madrid, please write to to our department of customer service at helpdq@donquijote.org. We would like to contact you in order to improve the experience

Mike Baclacian: Very expensive. I made a mistake with my flight, and they did not allow me to make up that day. They do not care about you achieving, they just want your your money. For 13 pages of exercises you will do in their book in one week, they will make you pay 65 Euros for the book. They have no idea about customer service, and the director and the other person under him, who work in the front office, are very rude. They do not want to hear your questions or to be bothered. The teachers want to just take it easy and chat for the class to take up the time. The teachers text on their phone while they tell you to do some exercise in a group. I heard good things about Enforex.
Response: We want to express our sincerest apologies for your experience with us in Madrid, if you have a specific complaint about any of our staff or facilities, we encourage you to write to our department of customer service at helpdq@donquijote.org. They will respond as soon as possible and will work with you to solve any issues that may have occurred. Once again, we are sorry that you did not have the experience you were expecting.

Selena Moore: I did a course here a few years ago in 2016 and found the teachers keen and excellent. The location is central and I would return again.

Kramer Seinfeld: +teachers were great, equipment is alright, the building is fine, well located, free internet -Just two toilets for all students is not enough (I was there at Xmas time when not a lot of students were there. I can imagine during busy summertime it is worst) It is difficult to get in touch with other students that are not in your class because there is no lounge, common room or patio.
Response: Thanks for your feedback Kramer, we will take it into account

paulo martinello: Nice school. I didn't understand why there is only one toilet and it doesn't have a way to dry hands after wash 😋
Response: Thank you Paulo! We are working on improving our schools, so your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

YUQI GUO: One of the best spanish schools in madrid for sure!!

Fnac: what do users think?


Natalie Samake: Although the people at the store were generally friendly, we were very disappointed as we wanted to buy a computer they had on sale. They told us they had no more in stock but that they would order them and the computer would guaranteed be available for pickup on Monday. We paid the full amount and trusted that we could come back for it two days later. On Monday we returned in the late morning and were told that the computer was not available and would not be in time for us to pick it up before continuing our travels. Had we known that, we could have found other computers during our weekend as this was a weekend of sales and now we feel we missed out and had to settle for a computer that was more expensive. Not what I expected from fnac.

Flavio: Fnac is a massive book store and other stuff store. It has around five floors ish and a basement. The decoration is great (Rorschach on wall) and has everything you need in your life. There's plushies of characters around the store. There's tons of figures (Frankenstein, Goku, etc). There's music discs and movies. There is a kids area with lots of books for little children and there used to be a screen where they could play angry birds, but because of covid, not anymore. There's a big section with books in other languages and overall lots of books from any genre. In the basement ish section there's video games and accessories to consoles which you can buy (there's a creepy child statue down there aswell). I don't think there's a cafe but there are toilets in the upper floors. There's a thing where they give leaflets and there's a big poster outside (this happens in most fnacs) and there's events throughout the month (I think they're free). For example movies like Demon Slayer Mugen Train and authors come in to talk to people. There's a real life size Batman statue near the comics (They have a vast selection, Invincible, Twd and etc) and lots of manga (Berserk, Jojo). The staff is nice. Overall you should definitely come here and have a look.

Mike Slovak: Really cool layout. There is about 3-5 levels that all go towards different things. One level was all music and then the next was books, etc. Prices are fair as well
Response: Cool! Mike Slovak thank you for your review. We hope to see you again soon at Fnac Callao.

Deluxe: I think all the staff that work here hate their lives because they are all always mean and annoyed when you ask them something. I speak spanish fluently since it's my mother tounge and they still treated me like they didn't know what I was saying. The store itself is ok I guess.
Response: Hello Deluxe IWW. We are sorry that your visit to Fnac Callao was not as satisfactory as we would have liked. For the Fnac team, your opinion is very important to continue improving our customers' experience on a daily basis. Thanks.

Sardar Wasi Uddin Al Ahmed: Fnac is a big departmental shop located at C. de Preciados, 28, 28013 Madrid which is the center of Madrid city. The shop is 5 floors like one floor is for electronics and gaming items, another floor is for Books etc. The only problem is nobody speaks in English here! So you have to ask them in Spanish if you want any help! A bit challenging for a tourist 😀😀
Response: Thank you Sardar Wasi Uddin Al Ahmed! Your review is very important to us. See you soon at Fnac Callao. Remember that you have all the culture and technology available 24 hours a day at Fnac.es. Cheers!

Soledad Madero Yuquich: Great place, if they don't have it they can order it and you pick items up the next day. Good prices. Remember to ask for your tax free form to get a 21% VAT refund if you're from outside Spain!
Response: Thank you very much, Soledad Madero Yuquich, for your review! We hope to see you again soon at our Fnac Madrid Rio store. Greetings!

Edder Orozco: This is an ok place to spend sometime wandering around while at the mall. They have some books and comics, and I mean some, a few electronics (not great prices by the way). The staff over here acts as if they are not there, they never ask if you need anything at all but that's ok, you really don't need them, it's just for courtesy and general customer service that they should.
Response: Hello Edder Orozco! Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon at Fnac Madrid Rio and continue improving your experience. Cheers!

Margaret Tipton: The staff was helpful, but took awhile to find someone to actually help me initially. Once I found someone, they were very attentive and honest with me in regards as to which product to buy when looking for a new phone.

Anna S: Small store with a good selection of books, music,and games.
Response: Thank you very much, Anna S, for your review! We hope to see you again soon at our Fnac Madrid Rio store. Greetings!

Rawandee: Lacks organization, many products/shelves missing price tag. Did not find any service or answers. Variety of products and brands.
Response: Hello Rawandee! Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon at Fnac Madrid Rio and continue improving your experience. Greetings!

Ben Ashley: Not specifically for this store but more as a critique to the company. Why charge for paper bags? When charged for plastic bags you can assume the proceeds go to removing the carbon footprint, but if you now provide paper bags, why? Generally, the products Fnac sells aren't cheap, as in, they're not a discount store... That's ok but why does Primark not charge me for the paper bag when I buy socks for 2€, Or Mango doesn't charge for a bag for a 10€ face mask but Fnac does for buying a 20€ scarf. I assume I wouldn't even get a complementary bag if I bought some 300€ headphones. I'm just reflecting on my customer experience from purchasing in this shop as opposed to others.

Denise Hrastel: Fnac Barcelona Arena - Big store with good products
Response: Denise Hrastel thank you for your review. We hope to see you again soon at Fnac Madrid Rio.
