The Volcano House at Kilauea is expensive, but there are only 35 rooms, and the experience is unique, as the rooms overlook the Kilauea caldera. The beds are comfortable, and while the bathroom is small, there is a good shower. The hotel staff are friendly, helpful, gracious and eager to serve. In addition to a view of the glowing caldera,...

Sleep on a volcano! The hotel is located right in the park, with easy access to walking and hiking paths...and you get a view of the volcano! Book the restaurant when it's dark and get a view of the orange glow at night. Food was good, room was clean, people were friendly. Yes, it's expensive, but when else will you... More

We initially tried to stay IN the Volcano House but found that all the rooms were full. They mentioned that they also offer camping services where they offer all the equipment - a fully set up tent, mattress, sheets, duvet, towels, ice box, lantern, camping chairs, so it was really glamping rather than camping. But even in the pouring rain,... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in June. Not sure what to expect, we found a good sized, clean and comfortable room. We did not opt for a room with a crater view. No regrets, the view from the sitting room downstairs, the restaurant and outside at the overlook was plenty good. Both the restaurant and the bar... More

Great old fashion hotel. We enjoyed our stay. Ask for a room with a view. Our room had a view of the parking lot. This was okay as there are several places from the hotel where you can view the volcano. Make a reservation in the Rim restaurant for around sunset and watch how the view changes. Sure, it's overpriced,... More

room #30 is a crater view room in the Annex on the ground floor. We paid $ 435..00 for a king bedded room tax inclusive. No bathtub but a very tiny shower facility. Closet space is huge. No A/ C so we depend on fresh air coming from numerous windows. This means we hear every possible noise. There were kids... More

Very knowledgeable guides and informative handouts enable you to immerse yourselves in the surreal nature of volancos and appreciate the impact they have on this amazing island. $15 entry is valid for a week; be sure to check out the visitors centre and the crater drive to the coast (and the...

We stayed in the Namakani Paio Cabins and were extremely surprised at how nice they were for "camping" accommodations. The staff in the main lodge was very helpful and went out of their way to make us feel as they said "at home." Kris really went the distance to assist me with a minor injury I sustained from a fall.... More

We only stayed one night but this was the perfect location for viewing the crater, the millions of stars at night and exploring the park. Rooms are a bit small and basic for the price but they're nice and I knew I was paying for the location. We ate the restaurant and had a lovely experience, the food was great.... More

We stayed in a cabin operated by the Volcano House. The resturant is pretty good; they have warm bread and great steaks. They had a wonderful gift shop and lounge to hang out in a buy gifts. Overall, I would recomend staying in one of the cabins operated by Volcano House and would have the dinner and breakfast at the... More
