I discovered Les Résidences Joséphines here on TripAdvisor and they seemed perfect for my needs: a short stay in Paris to see clients and then a weekend full of festivities for my godson’s baptism in Rueil Malmaison. I was not disappointed.
The owners/managers are extremely accommodating and flexible. I arrived to a spotless studio, where the cleaning lady was waiting to give me the key. My studio (on the 1st floor, 9 rue du 4 septembre) was tastefully furnished and equipped with almost everything you need. The WiFi connection worked immediately and was strong, fast and secured. When I realized there wasn’t a hair dryer, I contacted the owner, who arranged for one to be left outside the studio door. This kind of service is rare in France!
This particular studio enjoys an excellent location, right in the heart of the charming centre of Rueil. There’s a bus stop not even 2 minutes away to take you to the RER station to get to Paris. All in all, this was a fantastic experience.
There are a few things that could be improved however: one of the instruments on the electricity meter panel goes bezerk from time to time and makes an extremely loud clacking noise that sounds like someone pounding on the door. It only lasts a minute or so, but even with earplugs in, it woke me up a couple of times over the course of the 5 days. Also, for longer stays, a washing machine to do laundry would be a nice touch.
Still, I have to commend les Résidences Joséphines, particularly for the cleanliness and general helpfulness/professionalism, as well as the price/quality ratio. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone needing to stay in Rueil Malmaison or doing business at La Défense. For tourists, the trip into Paris could get tiring after a while, so I would not necessarily recommend it for first-time visitors to this gorgeous city. However, for repeat visitors, why would you stay anywhere else? For one or two people, this is an extremely comfortable and affordable way to enjoy Paris and the surrounding area.
