A very warm and friendly welcome from Claudia when we arrived. The pitches were large and well spaced.
The heated facilities block was kept clean, water for washing and showers etc very hot. With it it not possible to take clothes into the individual showers the more prudish might consider that more could be done to preserve their modesty.
There’s a free washing machine, microwave and fridge freezer in the washing up area.
Free wifi is available throughout the site but the signal varies. However at the
covered seating area near reception it flies.
There is no traffic noise but there is some from passing trains and planes over head not to be unexpected or for the convenience of staying so close to the city centre.
On check in there is a wealth of information about getting into and around
Budapest and the key areas offered verbally and paper based. Nothing was too much trouble. The bus stop to catch the metro two stops 1.5km away is 200m from the campsite. Public transport is free for the over 65’s and it was easy to get into and around Budapest.
The college near the bus stop serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We enjoyed a cooked breakfast there each morning before setting off to Budapest.
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Budapest and our stay at the Arena Campsite
Not enough showers or toilets for the amount of campers always long queues. No chemical toilet you are expected to use the motor home dump point quite often sanitary products and faeces visible as the area not cleaned properly! Also this same area is the route for walking in and out of the site! The fresh water tap at the side of the waste dump along with hose pipe which was being used for both! Your pitch is not your own either as they try to get more units on the same pitch. Definitely will not be returning!
Great campsite for access to Budapest. staff very friendly and helpful, providing loads of info about Budapest on arrival and even some useful info about Prague (which was one of our next destinations) when we left.
When we stayed we had an issue that we mislaid one of the loading ramps for our trailer (on the the way to the site) and Csort at reception was brilliant advising where the nearest Day place was where we could get materials to make a replacement.
Bus stop is just outside the site and there us a large Spar shop 10-20 minutes away on foot. Food at the University (CEU) is cheap and filling - they also have a bar/cafe such had decent free WiFi - better than that on the site.
Only negative about the site us that the railway runs along an embankment behind it and the trains are very noisy and seem to run most of the night. The site also appears to be under the flightpath for the airport.
Pladsen er meget ren og paen med gode faciliteter bl.a. opvarmet toiletter og bade med ubegraenset varmt vand. Vi besoegte pladsen om vinteren hvilket bl.a. betoed at der var lukket for vandet udendoers pga. risiko for frostspraengte roer, men var dog en vandslange fra toilettet saa man kunne sagtens faa vand paa. Den sidste stjerne mangler dog pga et lidt larmende tog der koerer forbi pladsen, men det er til at leve med. Gode transportmuligheder til Budapest, og et meget venligt personale. Alt i alt en god og billig campingplads
Wonderful site, friendly helpful staff and easy to catch transport to Budapest town. Good and clean facilities. Great to find it open and all services active in winter.
The reception lady is lovely and her manner and genuine interest in helping is a highlight. She puts in a lot of effort to welcome you and give information about Budapest. Please provide up to date maps though as there was old information on ours. Still very grateful for the map though!
There are bus stops close to the camp site, to and from the city, less than 5 minutes walk from the camp. Catch any bus along this main bus route into the metro. Bus trip 5 minutes.
A shopping complex with food stores is about half a kilometre away.
The grounds are leafy and well maintained. The camp ground is directly below a train line which gets very noisy. However, strangely enough because we knew about this from a previous review before arriving, it didn't ruin our stay. The trains pass quickly after all.
The shower room is kept warm and cosy but only shower curtains are provided (no locks). There should be hooks inside the shower cubicle for your things. There is one outside per shower.
There is only one lockable toilet in the toilet room as far as I could tell which is annoying.
There really needs to be a way to dry your hands in the amenities, particularly in such cold weather.
Don't bother with the Internet connection in the camp site. It doesn't work and the lovely reception lady warns that it is weak at check in. Take up her offer to sit in the reception and use the fast wifi there.
Very Nice camping ground! It is close to the city centre and has reasonable prices. Staff is really friendly and they also offer a playground for children. Toilets are kept really clean.
Stayed 2 nights at the camping and would have stayed even longer if our plane would wait.
Only a few minutes to get to the city center with public transport.
Really nice camping. Helpful and communicative staff at any time. Good, comfortable location. Price is really cheap, I didn't expected that conditions for small money. Place seems childfriendly. Surroundings contains many green areas. Nothing discourating.
Virkelig dejlig campingplads med enormt søde og hjælpsomme receptionister. Ligger tæt på bus og metro, og det er derfor nemt at komme ind til centrum (15 min). Toiletfaciliteterne er lækre og virker nyrenoverede. Prislejet er godt i forhold til at man bor så tæt på centrum. Vi giver dem vores bedste anbefalinger!
