TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Platani Trebinje
We stayed three nights in this comfortable, well-located hotel. It's right on the plaza where the weekly market is held. This is a good place to use as a base for day trips to Montenegro and nearby hill towns. Great restaurant, helpful and friendly staff.
