This can of course only be a brief selection of what's available. The more you go toward the city center and the longer you fancy to travel, the better your choice becomes, of course.
Also, we'd be hard pressed to include things like private accomodation or flats to rent here. It's a bit of a sport to put out flats for rent on portals like airbnb in Berlin, and these offers appear and disappear so fast (mainly because most of the time they're unlicensed and often plain illegal) that we can't give any recommendations. Just check them for availability if they're your cup of tea.
And if you choose to use public transport for getting back and forth between your accomodation and the con, a 7-day BVG bus pass is €29.50; or alternatively you can get a 5-day Berlin WelcomeCard that gives you discounts on various attractions. For accomodation that is just a few stops away from the Estrel, you can also purchase a set of 4 short-distance tickets. Check www.bvg.de
