taxi fares from airport to city

can anyone advise what the current taxi fare should be from the international airport to the city centre? I will be staying at the Meridian Court Hotel which I think is pretty central. I have been quoted $25US each way by the hotel. Is that a reasonable price to pay?

that is a fair price if your hotel is on the opposite side of the city to the airport.

If your hotel is central to the city or is on the airport side of the city, then you should pay no more than $20USD each way.

I returned from Nairobi yesterday and paid 1,500 Kenyan Shillings (about $25US) for a taxi to the airport from the city centre. You may be able to get the price cheaper by negotiating with a taxi driver at the airport on arrival, there is alot of competition, but this can be hassle after a long journey. I would have one pre arranged and waiting for you on arrival at the price offered by the hotel

USD$25 is more than reasonable. And for certain, you don't want to be negotiating even for $5 after your long flights.

you might find the prices increased very slightly as the petrol has risen to 100/- per litre

$25 is reasonable. A taxi may cost you slightly less but not by that much.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I agree it's not worth arguing over a few dollars after a 13 hr flight from Hong Kong! Will take up on the hotel's offer of $25 transfer.
