Thinking of going to Elysium spa in Rotterdam during my trip there in November. Just wondered if anyone can give advice on how to get there by public transport? Is there a bus that stops nearby? If so which bus service, and what stop would I need to get out? Assuming the starting point would be Rotterdam Centraal station.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

To get by public transport to Elysium is not that easy. Over the years i have made the trip by public transport many times. The earlier mentioned website 9292ov is not always clear. Checking the ov website and the Qbuzz website (Qbuzz is the operator of the bus transport in the regio of Rotterdam) learned that everything has changed since my last trip by public transport. Nowadays i travel by train to a station, stiuated not that far from this spa/saunacenter and than i take a 'regiotaxi'. Regiotaxi is a special low priced cab, wich offers a fair price for the taxifare, you only have the chance that you have to share (partially) the cab and that it's may be not driving the shortest way.
First the option with public transport from Rotterdam Central Station:
From Rotterdam Central Station you go by Metro/Randstadrail to the station of Berkel Westpolder. Information:
http://www.ret.nl/reizen-met-ret/dienstregeling/metro.aspx?sc_lang=en Choose Metrolijn E
Then you change and take the bus. Busline 173 from Qbuzz information:
http://www.qbuzz.nl/english/cDU2_Welcome+to+Qbuzz.aspx (short general information in English)
http://www.qbuzz.nl/regio+rotterdam/route+tijden/dienstregeling/cDU410_Dienstregeling.aspx?intBLDId=1902 (Berkel Westpolder - Bleiswijk)
http://www.qbuzz.nl/regio+rotterdam/route+tijden/dienstregeling/cDU410_Dienstregeling.aspx?intBLDId=1901 (Bleiswijk - Berkel Westpolder)
In Bleiswijk you have to leave or enter (when going back) the bus at the busstop "Eendendreef-Ijsvogellaan", you may ask te busdriver to give you a sign.
From there you have a walk from about 15-20 minutes to the "Kooilaan" where you find the Elysium spa on your left side. There are signs on the streetlights near/by junctions. Leaving the bus you walk in south direction to the junction of the "IJsvogellaan", "Lijsterlaan" and "Kastanjelaan". There you go to the left (Kastanjelaan). Immediately you have the first junction with the "Buizerdstraat" on the right. Leave that street on your righthand and walk straight on the Kastanjelaan. The second junction is with the "Ribeshof" on your left side, leave that on your lefthand and walk straight on the Kastanjelaan.
The third junction is with the "Peppeldreef" leave that also on your righthand and walk straight on the Kastanjelaan. The fourth junction is with the "Seringendreef" and the "Esdoornstraat" here you turn to right and follow the Kastanjelaan. The next junction is with the "GŲtzenhainsingel", here
you turn to the right to follow that street to his end at a junction with the "Merenweg" (important road). Here you turn to the left (Merenweg) and after some minutes walk you reach a junction/roundabout with the "Kooilaan". Here you turn to the right and after a few minutes walk you find Elysium on your left.

Second option with train and 'regiotaxi' :
Go from Rotterdam Central station to the station of Berkel Westpolder with Metro line E (direction Den Haag/The Hague) or from The Hague Central station to the station of Zoetermeer Oost and then take the Regiotaxi. The Adress of Elysium is Kooilaan 1 the Bleiswijk.
Information Metro E: http://www.ret.nl/reizen-met-ret/dienstregeling/metro.aspx?sc_lang=en Choose Metrolijn E

Information Trains (The Hague - Zoetermeer Oost): http://www.ns.nl/en/travellers/home
Information Regiotaxi: http://regiotaxi.haaglanden.nl/ Please notice that you have to call at least one hour before arriving at the station (Berkel Westpolder or Zoetermeer Oost). Also notice that the taxi/cab may arrive 15 minutes earlier or later than the time you ask, so keep this in your mind when booking this taxiservice. And do not forget to book also the returnfare!!!! Otherwise it's not possible to go back by this regiotaxi.
Their phonenumbers :
Tel. 088-9666000 (When in the Netherlands, otherwise +88-9666000) Reservations.
Tel. 088 - 9666011(+88-9666011) Informations.
When booking, mention that you do not have a pass/passnumber.

So i hope this information can help you and i hope you will enjoy your stay in the Netherlands and in Elysium,
Regards,
Kevin8 Wink
