    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.

    :p:p:p Almost as good as the guy who said he saw castles driving around Great Britian. Do you remember that one?

    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.
