Neukölln, Berlin, Germany

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • 15,000 square meter convention center with multiple stages
  • Huge convention hotel with 5 restaurants, a biergarten, and concert venue
  • Modern rooms with minibars, flat-screen TVs, and work desks
  • Well-equipped, bright fitness center
  • Big business center with plenty of workspace and printers
  • Outdoor biergarten open during the summer months
  • Concert venue has a performance every night

Cons

  • Pricey Internet in rooms
  • No swimming pool
  • Inconvenient location outside center of Berlin

Bottom Line

The Estrel is a mammoth conference hotel with 1,125 rooms and suites. This complex also has five restaurants, two bars, a summer garden, and a concert venue with a performance every night. Simple, modern rooms are on the large side and have minibars, flat-screen TVs, and work desks. The hotel has a variety of public spaces, including a spacious lobby, outdoor biergarten, and indoor atrium bar. There is also a well-equipped fitness room and a business center. All of these amenities are an effort to make the complex as entertaining as possible, as the Estrel is quite far from the bustle of Berlin's center.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In southeast Berlin, quite removed from the action

As with most conference centers of this size, Estrel Berlin is not centrally located. Though the driving times to the center of the city look manageable, public transport to this part of Berlin is less abundant, and it will take 40 minutes on a train or bus to reach the most popular tourist sights. The hotel is certainly working hard to entertain guests so that they don't need to leave, but any tourists looking to see Berlin from this vantage point may be disappointed.

Berlin is a vibrant city with a tolerant and spirited arts scene and fantastic public transportation. Over 20 years since the Berlin Wall fell, the German capital has become known to have something for everyone, from world-class dining and great street food to cutting edge artists and performers, and even a growing fashion scene.

  • 14-minute drive to Berlin Tegel Airport
  • 12-minute walk to Memorial church or Gedächtniskirche
  • 11-minute drive to the Cold War remnant Checkpoint Charlie (at the corner of Friedrichstrasse & Zimmerstrasse)
  • 11-minute drive to the Jewish Museum
  • 15-minute drive to Pergamon Museum
  • 15-minute drive to famous baroque palace Schloss Charlottenburg
  • 16-minute drive to the Reichstag
  • 16-minute drive to Brandenburg Gate
  • 17-minute drive to the indie-cool shopping district of Scheunenviertel
  • 17-minute drive to the picturesque Tiergarten
  • 17-minute drive to Mitte district for bars and dance halls
