you are getting analytic solution due to fortunate choice of parameters
R =.;
k = 1/R^2;
sol = DSolve[{h'[t] == 1/(h[t] (2 R - h[t])) - k, h[0] == 0}, h[t],
   t] // FullSimplify
for which
{{h[t] -> -((t + Sqrt[t (4 R^3 + t)])/(2 R^2))}, {h[t] -> (-t + Sqrt[
    t (4 R^3 + t)])/(2 R^2)}}
in general case
DSolve[h'[t] == 1/(h[t] (2 R - h[t])) - k, h[t],  t]
will get expression with InverseFunction
which cannot be solved analytically
