Bangkok is the city of traffic jams. So the skytrain is probably the easiest and fastest way to travel true Bangkok. Is is cheap for Europeans, but expensive for Thai.

Easy way to get around to tourists attractions and cheapest also very safe. Sky train and underground train is the way

BTS travel is comfortable. It does not seem to be cheap. Stations are clean and there are shops for food items. Transfers are easily possible. Not very crowded. But not close to the places of tourist attractions like palace, temples etc.

Convenient way to get around city centre, but can get very packed, and commuters are not very accommodating to elderly/persons in need.

We used the sky train and had figured out our route before. It was very easy to use. A little crowded though.
