Few local questions please?

Hi all. we are arriving in bilbao airport on Friday 6th March , we have booked to stay at the Tryp Arenal Hotel.

1)How much would it cost for a taxi to our hotel from the airport? there are 3 of us.

2) What is the exchange rate klike at the moment, do you get a better deal buying the euros there than in England?

3) On Saturday night we are going to see a band at the Rockstar Live Megapark - Barakaldo.

Can anyone please tell us how we get there from the hotel? , how far away is it?

Many Thanks

You´re right at the entrance of the Old Town, close to any metro or tram stop and to all the main shopping area. In any case, you can almost walk anywhere (a nice promenade following the river to the Guggenheim takes just 20minutes).

1) Around 20 euros. There´s also a bus service running every half hour for 1,50, I reckon.

2) 0,89 euros to a pound. I don´t know, it´s the official rate of the European Central Bank.

3) You can get there either on the metro (Ansio station) and walk for just 15´ (Hammerfall?¿). If not, a 20´ ride on a taxi, for around 20 euros.
