Nothing unique. Ok for the price. Quiet place but everything is quiet over there. Like the envelope with the information and the plan to reach the village and the Volcanoes Park. Bathrooms were perfect. A lot of towels, clean and full equip. Didn't like that we can NOT turn off or stop, while eating, the fan ceiling above the table. Really not cool. Also, if you provide coffee, then make sure you have sugar and cream, even if not real cream. Nothing there than just an empty basket.

Volcano Hale
The bottom floor shower went from cold to scalding hot. We could not figure out how to get warm water. We did appreciate the outdoor lights.

10/10 Exceptional

I have stayed at the Volcano Hale many times and it has always been a very consistent, reliable and pleasant place to stay while visiting Volcanoes National Park. Great location in the town of Volcano and the Park is just minutes away. It is always clean and well maintained with a budget friendly price.

Quiet and relaxing
Nice location, close enough to the volcano national park, small local restaurants and stores close by. Very clean conditions, comfortable bed and good wifi

Charming and characterful
This is a heritage building surrounded by semi tropical gardens. Bedrooms are small but adequate but share a bathroom, not a problem for two nights with considerate neighbours. There is a communal room with a kitchen, useful if you arrive late. Fellow travellers are young couples and families. The situation is very convenient fo the Volcanoes National Park, five minutes away so seeing the park at night is easy. Restaurants are nearby. We loved staying here.

Ok for sleeping
Little difficult to find with an after hours check-in - dark roads not very clearly marked. Room was not near central office, breakfast was coffee (powdered creamer, no milk/cream), papaya & instant oatmeal packs. Ok if you're just sleeping there, but wouldn't recommend for families

2/10 Poor

Do no honor cancellation policy
Hotel is good. My problem is with hotel not honoring cancellation policy. I had a second reservation (and that was not made with hotels.con) whose cancellation policy reads 72 HR CXL which means no penalty for cancellation up to 72 hours prior to arrival time. I cancelled that reservations several months before arrival date, yet the hotel refused to fully refund the money. To me this is not an honest way to run a business.
