We stayed for 2 nights, it was a nice stay. Only few minutes walking to the Bahnhof (Sonnenalle station). We got a nice view to the river.
The inside of the room was cleaned, but outside on the window we found spider web. It seems it's not often the Hotel clean the glass from outside.
In the room doesn't provide a flipflop and some toiletries such like shower cap and cotton bud.
And the bed is little bit hard, the pillows are too thin like it's not a 4 stars hotel, so uncomfortable.
But yeah since Hotel in Europe are mostly expensive, so Estrel is good enough to be chosen to stay again.
“unfriendly staff, management aweful”

“It was an amazing experience, we went to Berlin for the weekend and was very happy to stay at Estrel”
“Good hotel, terrible location”
The hotel is the biggest in Germany. So it's over the top large with conference halls, its own restaurants, and performing venue. The weekend we stayed there was a huge convention on. It's a nice enough hotel but the location is shocking. 8kms out of the city and the local area is terrible. A train station is close by, which is good, but once you cross under the tracks you feel like you've arrived at the wrong end of town. I felt completely unsafe after nightfall and during the day the area had many drunks walking around. If you're looking to immerse yourself in the Berlin culture, eat local food, close to sights, then this is not the place. We changed hotels (we only booked two nights here just in case, I could have left after one but had already paid). We got a different hotel in a much nicer location (between Ostbahnhof and Friedrichshain) to complete our Berlin visit.
If you are happy getting a cab to and from the hotel, then the hotel is good otherwise steer clear. You'll enjoy Berlin much more being somewhere else.
