We stayed at the Estrel in February 2012 for a business function.
The Hotel is very large and recently renovated. We had a Junior Double Suite which was excellent. Lovely and large with a separate sitting area, two televisions, perfectly adequate bathroom with shower over the bath.
Spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Our room was at the front of the building which was very noisy from traffic - not a problem for us; with the freezing temperatures we kept the window closed but this could be an issue in the summer months.
Breakfast was plentiful with excellent hot and cold choices. The hotel was full when we attended but there were no issues with having to wait for breakfast it was all well organised with several areas being used
There are three restaurants, we sampled the Italian and Thai both of which were very good however, be aware that they may close early if custom is slow.
Going out of the Hotel to the main road and turning left there is a MacDonalds and a couple of supermarkets. Turning right at the main road is a nearer supermarket. There are also other restaurants etc within walking distance but the area is very dismal.
In our opinion this hotel is only suited to those attending functions at the Hotel. It is not a hotel to use if you are a tourist visiting Berlin because it is well out of the tourist area and is difficult to find your way to central Berlin, especially if the concierge gives you the wrong information as he did in our case. Also, do not think as we did to stay a little longer as there is ‘always something locally of interest to see’. The area surrounding the Estrel is awful - there is absolutely nothing to see just dog dirt and spit every few yards.
Taxi from the airport was efficient and cost no more than £20.00. Plenty of taxis always available outside the hotel.
For those attending for a convention the hotel is excellent and we would certainly recommend and return.
