Taxi Fare and time Suvarnabhumi to Pratunam

Will be traveling to BKK to begin the first leg of my SEA trip in October. Staying at the Berkeley Hotel, Pratunam. Do the taxi meters still start at 35 TB, how much should I expect in tolls, and minus the 50 TB airport tax and tolls what should the meter approximate and how long should it take? Arriving 19:15 on a Friday night. Thanks for the help. I am new to this forum.

Should be in the B300 range including tolls minus the B50 surcharge. B350 all in but may go as high as B400 depending on traffic conditions.

You could consider the Airport Link to Ratprarop, depending on the amount of luggage you have.

Traveling very light! Carry-on and backpack.

In which case the Airport Link is a pretty good option. It does get quite busy but you miss all the traffic, the fare would be about 50 Baht or less on the City Line, don't get the Express as that doesn't stop at your station, and then a few minutes walk to your hotel.

Less than 45 baht to Ratchaprorop.

Doesn't look like a cheap hotel.

After a long flight its much more relaxing IMO to grab a taxi. Cost approx 350-400baht.
