...I just wanted a normal checking account that I could transfer to and from...
For this purpose I can re-recommend Sparkasse Hochrhein.

Althoug it's a German bank, their "Giro Swiss" offer provides you with a normal Swiss IBAN allowing for "normal" domestic Swiss transactions. (It is most specifically NOT just a foreign currency account!)

I know folks resident in Panama who managed to open it, so I guess it's relatively easy.
