Volcano House is Hawaii’s oldest hotel and it sits on the rim of Kilauea caldera inside Volcanoes National Park. Hotel amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi and bicycles, a lending library with guidebooks, history books and children’s books, a gift shop, restaurant with a view of the caldera, a lounge, and rooms with views of Halema’uma’u Crater, as well as rustic cabins and campsites. It is very close to park activities including the Jaggar Museum & Overlook, Thurston Lava Tube, and Kilauea Visitor Center.

This hotel offers a restaurant that can be good, but not necessarily. The breakfast buffet was ok but limited. The dinner menu is so so, the lamb and chicken dishes were great, but found beef and stir fry to be less appealing and left most of it. But a great view out the windows with the meals.
Great gift shops, lobby area offers seating in front of 2 fireplaces.
The room itself was clean, minimal, but adequate. This old hotel has a-lot of charm. I would stay again because if its access to hiking trails and being the only hotel in Volcano.
We have not stayed at the venue but ate there several times during our recent stay in the area. The view from the dining room into the crater is totally unique and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals there. Our favorite was the fish n chips which was perfectly done. The staff is warm and friendly and very appreciative of being back to work after last year's closure of the park. Would totally recommend staying there if you can - and if you cannot, definitely make plans to have a meal there. One of our favorites in the Volcano area!
