This was a good homestay for the price. Susana and Ariel were friendly and kind people who made our stay in Havana lovely. Breakfast in the morning was basic but freshly prepared and was a mixture of fresh fruit, eggs, bread and fresh fruit juice. I booked a 4 person room for 2 people which meant it was spacious however the bathroom was a little on the small side. The room/bathroom were immaculate and very clean and the sheets and towels were changed everyday which was amazing. Susana also organised a taxi for us from the airport (costing CUC $25) and both of them got up at 5am to make us breakfast and drive us to the Viazul on our last day which was extremely kind of them!
A couple of things to note if you are thinking of staying here.
1. Susana and Ariel do not speak very much English. This is not a problem if you speak some Spanish but I don't think I realised just how little English they spoke until we arrived as all of our communications beforehand (in English) were word-perfect. So just a word to the wise if, like us, you are terrible at Spanish, that staying here may be slightly harder if you want their help to book excursions. We spent a good couple of hours trying to decipher a day trip to Vinales and even though we managed to book it a few things went awry because of mis-communication!
2. This property is located in Centro Habana. The main sites/bars/restaurants of Habana are located in Old Habana. To walk to the 'centre' it took a minimum of 25 minutes which we didn't mind doing however after 3 days of walking around a lot in 30 degree heat we found it a strain to have to constantly do the journey to and from the house (on the basis that we would explore in the morning, return in the afternoon for a few hours, and then return to Old Havana again in the evening). Taxis in Habana are not cheap - one from Old Habana to their house cost us CUC $10 - so we couldn't validate doing that on a daily basis because of our budget.
As mentioned, the homestay is very good value for money, so the above points are not an issue as long as you are aware of them and come expecting it. To anyone that stays here, expect a traditional Cuban experience as Susana and Ariel are so passionate about their homestay and their country that it would be a shame if you missed them!
Highly recommended! The apartment is clean and very modern, great breakfast and everything you wish for! Susana and her husband are so special and lovely persons, we really enjoyed our stay at your place and would love to come back someday!
Totalmente recomendable! La casa de Susana es muy limpia y moderna, el desayuno super rico y hay todo lo que se desea! Susana y su marido son personas muy amables y especial, nos encantó estar en su casa y nos hubiera gustado estar más tiempo. Nos gustaría volver algún día!
I would definitely recommend Casa Susana! I stayed here several nights here (on my own) and felt very safe and welcomed here. It is true that rooms are very clean/comfortable, and breakfasts were very filling! Susana is particularly helpful providing directions and where to go, and would explain it as best as possible given that my Spanish was not the best... It's a well located place from the main places to visit, with some good restaurants around too. Certainly made the trip a whole lot easier/comfortable and would go back again!
I would like to say it is always a pleasure to stay with Susanna. I have stayed with Susanna many times now in my travels to Cuba. We love this case particular. Susanna runs the casa particular with Ariel with Susanna in charge of the stay. She is very polite and tries to make your stay as best as possible. The room is super clean along with the rest of the house. The location is great only a short walk to El Bickys restaurant including Havana Libre and Hotel Nacional. Ariel makes a great breakfast in the morning too. Susanna keeps the home nice and clean. She is great on advice on where to go and always tries to make you feel right at home. I always feel safe at her house a very trusting couple. Thank you Susanna for making out stay another wonderful experience. We will most definitelty see you again. Nos vemos.

I spent several days in Susana's house in December 2018 and I must say that Susana and her husband Ariel and wonderful guests. The rooms are more than clean and well furnished, the breakfast is particularly complete (the fresh fruits are awesome). Susana and Ariel will do anything they can in order for you to feel part of the family!
We strongly recommend Casa Susana . The house is very centrally located between Plaza de la Revolucion, Hotel Nacional, the Fabrica de Arte Cubano (F.A.C) and Old Havana. Walking from Casa Susana to Old Havana takes about 15-20 min., and you have to go through Centre of Havana, which is an amazing experience because you will get to see the real life of the locals in these big Spanish-styled houses, which condition says a lot about Cuba (and gives fantastic photo opportunities!).
The room in Casa Susana was very clean, with both AC and a fan. Actually Susana and Ariel cleaned the room every day as well as changed towels and bed linen almost every day.
The bed was very comfortable. The room has its own fridge with cold drinks, which was very convenient in preparation for daily outings.
The breakfast was massive and really good, and Ariel made a great effort for us to try different food every breakfast - especially the freshly made juices were a delicious.
Now, the best part of staying at Susana and Ariel is how friendly, helpful and kindhearted these guys are. They were very enthusiastic giving suggestions about what to do in Havana. Ariel even took part of his day to book us a live show of cuban music where two of the members of Buenavista Social Club were performing, which was awesome.
They also gave us inputs for great and not very expensive restaurants as well as shops where we found exactly the things we were looking for (after walking a lot around old havana without any results).
They transmitted a great vibe and really care about us being safe and enjoying our time in Havana. We will definitely stay with Susana and Ariel again!
