                The bed was very comfortable The room was very clean The staff was friendly

                Damn near impossible to find but clean and comfortable. Finding it took the good graces of many locals as t is offset from the road with unclear signage. I would describe it as being more like a homestay than a hotel but it was a nice place to stay.

                在澎湖的两天都住在玄武岩之美,房东夫妇人超级好。一开始早上接我们到住的地方,虽然没到入住时间,还是让我们用了浴室,稍微整理了一下,以便第一天直接去玩。在岛上的娱乐项目也是房东安排的,省去了很多麻烦。早餐有很多选择,也是棒棒哒!后来租车出了点问题,房东又非常贴心的帮我们解决,安慰我们,感觉很温暖~离开那天也是载我们到机场,还送了明信片给我们,为澎湖之旅画上了圆满的句号。房间很干净,有窗户。总之,很满意!深刻的体会到了那句“在台湾最美的风景是人”
