Estrel is booked solid, Waiting list is full.
« on: 11.01.2016, 17:59:50 »

Hi everyone!

Due to the immense number of requests, our room block at the Estrel Hotel is now completely booked out. They also have closed the waiting list, as they have been totally flooded with requests, and it does not make sense to maintain a list that is multiple times longer than the number of rooms expected to become available.

As always, a lot of people have booked single rooms. If you have a single room, please help your fellow furries out, and take in a roommate. You can always convert your booking to a double room (single rooms are technically just double rooms rented to a single person) and it will save you a lot of money, too! This could potentially free up to 200 extra beds.

What can you do in case you didn't make the cut?

  • You can seek alternative accomodation. There are plenty of hotel options in berlin, and public transport is pretty good. There is a thread in the forum where people have been posting about good alternatives, and their experiences. It is certainly worth checking out!

  • You can try reserving a room at the Estrel through a third party. Some hotel booking portals and travel agencies have their own permanent room block that we do not have access to. Some of them might actually offer pretty good deals, and it's a perfectly legit way to get a room. However, it is your own responsibility to compare the prices, and decide if it's worth it for you. Also make sure you read the small print so they can't re-book you to other hotels.

  • You can look for someone who might still have a free space in their double room and would be willing to share with you - or if someone with a single room might be willing to convert to a double room. The best place to ask would be our Room Sharing Board.

  • Triple rooms are officially offered this time. Availability may be limited, but it's worth asking for! If you know someone with a double room who might be willing to take you in, they can upgrade their double room with an extra bed by writing an email to reservierung@estrel.com.  Update (Jan 25) - Triple rooms are sold out



Thanks :)
