The Estrel is a huge hotel, with restaurants and bars in an atrium serving very good food, particularly the Italian restaurant. Breakfast is great, with masses of choice, and very good selection of breads. The food is replenished until everyone has eaten, and the chef even asked if we had finshed before clearing away. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly with the exception of the concierge, who was verging on being rude. We desperately wanted to hire a car for our last day to visit Potsdam, and were basically told that all he would do was look on the internet, which we could do ourselves. When we struggled to find somewhere on our limited internet access (we had 60 minutes for a 5 day stay) he still would't help. He even said he couldn't understand why we wouldnt take the bus or the train, but we only had a 6 hour window in our stay, and it wouldnt have given us long enough to visit all the sites had we used public transport. We didnt see the show ourselves, but were told it was brilliant. The only down side to the hotel is its distance from the centre of Berlin, although there is a bus stop outside the hotel and a station just down the road. Taxis are always available and cost up to 20 Euros. The hotel is on the river, so there are also two boat trips available each day lasting around 4 hours. By the river there is also the hotels little bier garten, with a sandy area with modern cushioned sun loungers. There are some restaurants in the area plus a Netto and Lidl, but no shops. In summary ths s a lovely hotel if you are prepared for the travel to see the sites. For a convention centre it is perfect.
