    No, but we were there a year ago and it is a fantastic city.

    We were at Camp Haller in Budapest last August. Basic site and some might think it a bit tatty (there were a few "alternative" looking vans and inhabitants there) but it was actually pleasant, right in the city and not exorbitant.

    It took a couple of circuits of the block to actually find it, as the entrance isn't immediately obvious.

    Owners very friendly and helpful, even booked a river cruise for us at what seemed to us to be a very reasonable price.

    Wish we'd had more time to spend there. It was very hot and despite my best intentions never to set foot in a McD*n*lds in Europe, it was the only place selling ice cold drinks.

    Looking at the map, that is amazingly central. Walking distance from the centre of a capital city, and the prices look really quite reasonable. I'm tempted myself!

    Yep, very central. As well as walking, we used every form of local transport - bus, tube, taxi and river boat! Wish we'd stayed longer.

    Also, we didn't book in advance, in August, just phoned on the day and still got a place!

    I have been to Camping Haller twice. It will easily take a 9m+ van and I saw an RV get in there. It is not on Haller ucsita but when you see the sign you have to turn right twice to get to the entrance. It has a bar/diner which does good goulash soup. Very friendly and helpful owner. Dutch, but with good English. it is clean with good facilities and ACSI too iirc. Definitely recommended.
