“Can't beat it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

We are quite seasoned European campers but hadn't been to Budapest for 15 years until the summer of '13, revisited Zugligeti Niche (now with children) & found the place even better than we remembered. The locale is of great interest being the former terminus of the tramway & the site retains not only two trams but the original waiting room/ticket office where great food is served including a complimentary buffet breakfast (you can really 'pig-out'). The setting is at the foot of the Buda Hills & affords easy access to the myriad of attractions up there via the chair-lift at the bottom of the campsite drive-way & an easy-quick bus ride to the city centre. On our previous visits ('97/'98) this campsite along with Ave Natura Camping next door was one unified campsite with terraced pitches. From what I understand due to a divorce settlement the majority of the terraced pitches (in the trees) have ended up with Ave Natura but some tree terraces remain at Zugligeti Niche. The staff & owners where splendid & couldn't do enough for you, the amenities & food were first-class & the value for money was astounding (8 days, five persons, electric pickup, parking space etc all for £200). 4/5 stars for cleanliness purely because the site is 'dusty' which isn't a problem in the slightest but don't go expecting grass plots. This year we will return, no question!

I have been camping all over Europe for the summer and I can honestly say staying here was one of the best experiences I have been lucky enought to encounter. Very convenient location just out of the city centre which Is easily accessed by bus. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpfull, and how can you go past free pancakes for breakfast!!! On top of all of this they are very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend staying here.

Camping Niche, while small provided us with an awesome experience in Budapest. Having travelled extensively the past 3 months in our van, Camping Niche was by far the most hospitable and friendly. Favourites... Savory rolls and pancakes at free breakie time, goulash soup for dinner (had it two nights in a row)
As mentioned in another review the cleanliness of this place is next level.. Was Marta a ninja cleaner?
Only 20mins to bus to main train station, Marta sells the tickets which is handy as you can't buy on bus. Bus comes every 20 mins.
All and all in cold rainy few days, this campsite made our trip to Budapest tens times better! Thanks!

Wow what a great find...it's an old tram station, quite small and very friendly. On arrival we were given a drink as a welcome. Staff so friendly. Facilities really good. Nice local food served and a good breakfast included in the price ,,,bonus. As newcomers to motor home camping this was by far the nicest site we had been to since leaving Italy. Clean showers, toilets, great beer! Bus stop to Budapest just outside the site...a must do if you are visiting Budapest...and a bottle of wine to go home with as well....thank you all for a good stay. Will be back

This place is really special. Everything centres around the beautiful old tram stop building. This has a bar serving meals (eg. goulash and very good chips), good coffee, and excellent pancakes in the morning. Marta and the staff are so welcoming and hospitable, and the place is kept impeccably clean. Even in busy August, when what seemed like, the entire Italian Caravanning Club were there, it always felt like the showers had been cleaned just before you used them. When we were there, the whole camp smelt of wood smoke giving it that extra ambience!
Even though it's a long, thin, linear site, it didn't feel cramped, perhaps because of the lofty trees that surround the place. A quirky and welcoming site, which was the highlight of our road trip! Also, well positioned for Budapest. The bus takes about 40 mins to the main train station, and bus tickets are available from Marta,who can also provide helpful maps. The end of the bus line is right outside the campsite. There is free wireless in and around the tram stop building. A calm haven in a busy summer city!

After reading so many positive reviews for Zugligeti Niche Camping, I was very keen to come here and see for myself. My expectations were exceeded!

This is one of the nicest places I've stayed. Martha and Co are excellent hosts, the facilities (wi-fi, hot showers/bathrooms, laundry) are plenty and clean, the grounds are well maintained and the nature surrounding is beautiful. The idea of being a solo female camper was somewhat daunting before I arrived but I always felt safe, enjoyed great hospitality, I felt at peace and at home.

I really can't rate this place highly enough, I think if you can pitch a tent then you should definitely stay here!

Also there is public transport to the site, bicycle paths to the city and a chairlift next door that goes to a beautiful lookout over the city. The restaurant serves great food (+ free breakfast) which you can enjoy in the lovely indoor/outdoor dining areas.

So there you have it. Bring your friends, family or just yourself, I guarantee you will enjoy it!

:-)
