We stood in a hotel across the street from Jardines de Sabatini. The Jardines were quite magical, my daughter Luna really enjoyed. Definitely a must visit while in Madrid.

This is a good place to chill after a museum visit. It's to the left as you exit the palace. There are 2 ice cream shops across the street to grab some refreshments and walk down few steps to soothing greenery.

Small but wonderful ... either you look you will see green ..... a beautiful small lake with fountain is located in the center of the garden in front of the royal palace .... trees is trimmed and cut in a very wonderful shape ... there are some passages between trees .... you will enjoy your visit to the garden and...

Sabatini Gardens located on the back side of the royal palace in Madrid, freely accessible and viable in total peace and relaxation, to be honest the gardens are manicured to perfection maniacally, this is quite obvious since it is part of the area of the royal palace, however, to be honest there is nothing to see outside of plants, flowers...

This is a beautiful park but there are a lot of them in Madrid. If you're close to the place and want to take a rest it's good. But it's not really interesting to go there just to "visit" it.

Lovely park in a peaceful winter setting. There were few people about which made it very intimate. We can imagine that in the summer it is crowded but would still come here as the gardens are spectacular.

This was a truly beautiful and peaceful oasis with a stunning view of the palace. Hubby and I enjoyed a peaceful stroll along the well maintained paths. It was so cold, the ponds were frozen over. As mentioned before, there were few people in the park. Made it feel almost private. Now for the depressing bit and a heads up... More

Right by the Palacio Real, we actually enjoyed el Parque de Retiro better (at least the gardens). There were some benches we sat at and just soaked up the sun.

We visited this garden after seeing the Royal Palace, which is beside the garden. I like the structure of the garden with its symmetry. There are usually few people in the garden, so you can rest a little in it without any noise.

The gardens close to the Royal Palace were boring and there is nothing to see. They look like they need some work done and some flowers to brighten them up. Not worth a visit.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
