For $260 a night, you expect AC, but there was none. It was only in the 60s/70s (F) outside, but we couldn't keep the windows open, because there were no screens, and we started to get some mosquitoes. The result? It ended up pushing 80 degrees in the room, and I couldn't sleep.
Other than that, the hotel was great. The room was huge with VERY comfy beds (and fluffy comforters, a rarity in European hotels), the bathroom was equally huge, and they provide a tea and coffee set along with a fairly full set of toiletries for the bath. The decoration of the hotel was quite interesting. To me, it felt a bit like being in a 70s- or 80s-era James Bond movie.
Muttenz is a small town outside Basel. It takes about 20-25 minutes to get into the city by metro, and hotel provided us with a free metro pass.
We had some trouble with the wifi - it worked fine on the iPhone, but not on the PC. I ended up having to connect to the network manually, since the login page wasn't coming up as it should have.
Breakfast was not included, and we ended up having our own yogurt, cereal, and coffee in the room - there's a Coop grocery store right next door to the hotel.
