It's quite far from MBK. Just a guess, but maybe 150-200 baht in a taxi. Ladphrao soi 71 is near the Ram Inthra Expressway so it could go fairly fast if you're willing to pay the toll, possibly 45 baht. But it really is a long way out. I advise you to seek something closer in or on the Skytrain or MRT line. It's no fun to have to constantly be running back and forth in Bangkok traffic.
I agree it is a long way out unless you use the expressway to get to downtown Bangkok a taxi will take for ages especially during the morning and evening rush hour.
My apartment is out that way and it can take me anything from 20 minutes to one hour to get to downtown. At certain times of the day taxi drivers will not trip between theses areas.
I would suggest that if it is not too late you change your hotel.
I believe that Bansabi will organise free drop off to local MRT station. Also it depends how long you are staying there for as to how much of an inconvenience the journying is. I have stayed there many times and have not felt inconvenienced at all, infact I'd say it adds to the experience of being in BKK.
