Airport to Hotel Transfer, Bangkok

Jump to last reply

First time to Thailand. Will be arriving from Hong Kong, so not a long flight or jet lag.
Anyone have suggestions on the most convenient, yet not overly-priced, means for two people to get from the international airport to our Bangkok hotel (the Shangri-la). Hotel is offering private transfer for 2900 baht, which sounds overpriced for us. I'm always nervous about the honesty of random taxi drivers. Even in cities like Tel Aviv or Barcelona with an agent at the curb putting us in a taxi, it seems the drivers pretend they don't understand English and the fee they want at the end is higher than the agent quoted. I usually prefer a train to avoid traffic, if there is one. but we are in our 60's so don't want to drag our luggage through subway or skytrain transfers or land blocks way from the hotel or struggle to find a taxi at the train station to finish our journey to the hotel. I'm comfortable with anything under $60. What we really dislike are shuttle buses that make us sit through interminable drops at other hotels. Haven't found anything on the internet about what approx taxi fare would be.
