Very relaxed walking around. Certain areas are strewn with papers and cigarette butts saw drivers throwing papers out from their car

We spent about twenty minutes here on the way to the Royal Palace. As others have mentioned, it is a nice place for pictures. I found it peaceful and my daughter, who has been living in Madrid, likes to come here to relax and read a book.

Great place for photos, particularly if you're there in the morning before the crowds arrive. We were there about 9.30 (early by Madrid tourist standards) and we had the place to ourselves. Lovely bit of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the lively city centre.

We took our photos here while going down to the garden with the Royal Palace as a perfect and beautiful background, early morning hours will be great for photo shoot and also at sunset when the lights on.

I enjoy seeing the Jardines de Sabatini, beside the Royal Palace. Every time we see the Royal Palace I like to walk in the gardens. There is a chance to sit here quietly and admire the fountains and the flowers and other plants in this garden.

Beautiful, but the effect of the hedges were lost on me a bit as they needed to be trimmed to give the sharp look required for such a formal garden. Worth checking out though.

I loved it! i spent some time just sitting in the shadows of the trees and just feeling the privacy allowed by the trees and hedges. if you're looking to spend some quiet me time, this is an excellent place to do it.

We thought this was a good enjoyable free site. Not as good as the gardens near to the prado museum but still a good way to spend a few hours. Again in summer this place must be beautiful
