    I am trying to book a hotel for a couple of days in London for the month of May. It looks like I will have to pay $100 to $200 per night for something decent. (61 to 122 British pounds)
    Can anyone recomment a decent hotel or at least a decent neighborhood. I won't have a car so I will be walking, using the tube and maybe cycling. I will have to check out the cycling when I am there.

    Dude, you can't walk or drive or cycle to London. Get that sorted out before you try finding a hotel room.

    The tube is your friend. Camden is really nice.

    If you plan on going all over town, just look for a place that's really close to a tube stop and yet affordable. You might have to stay out a ways from the big tourist sites to get this, given your price range--hotels are very pricey in London. There are lots of decent-to-good neighborhoods there, however, in my experience.

    My wife and I rented a flat, which was a bit cheaper and allowed us to cook some meals ourselves and save money. But there was a minimum stay of seven days.

    Couple of days? Try any of the Premier Inns on the South Bank. Will suit you perfectly.

    I concur, my company's Euro HQ is in the Camden Locke area. The Holiday Inn there is actually nice, as well as the Marriott. I had a blast when I went there in 2011 for a week long project.
