Suvarnabhumi International Airport's 1st level (first floor) is located just below the arrival hall. You can get here by elevator or the walkalator if you're pushing a cart full of baggages. From here, there are counters for transportation: limousine taxis, and even buses and vans that will take you directly to places like Pattaya and Koh Samui.
Walkalator from the 2nd level
From the walkalator (or an elevator), head leftwards to get to the train station. Taxis are just outside this lobby.
This is the view once inside the train station, facing the ticket counter (right) and entrance. just outside are restaurants and shops which are part of the airport's first level.
From this floor, you have to take the elevator (photo below) to get to your train platform. An airport hotel is supposed to operate in this 1st floor level.
Elevator to the platform and back to the 1st level.

This was late lunch at a restaurant called Twin Mix Food - stir fried noodle with vegetable and pork at 85B, plus 15B Coke. It looked absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, it was the king of blandness.
Didn't taste as good as it looked.
Twin Mix Food restaurant is located at the first level, near the lobby of the Airport Link Train Station.

A view just outside the first floor of Suvarnabhumi. Nearby are taxi bays.
Taxi Counters. Queue for a taxi, state your destination, get a coupon and a driver is assigned to take you. Then you cross the street to get to your taxi. Insist that they flag down the meter!
Luminescent public taxis waiting for their customers. Why take a taxi when you can take the train to Bangkok?
