I like the floor plan for Unit 121 better, but I've never had to live with a spiral staircase, so I don't know if that'd be enough of a pain to avoid altogether.

Unit 213 is a little awkward in set-up if you like to entertain--with access to the bathroom through the bedroom only--and I generally prefer to avoid places that enter to the kitchen or dining area (but that's more of a personal preference).

I have the American Leather Natasha sleeper in Twin (regular/non-tempurpedic). Purchased towards the end of last year. Still fantastic! I haven't had problems with the sofa cushions being too firm, but maybe I just like it that way.

The only thing is I like to use my laptop or do some reading in bed, and the design of the bed doesn't give you a back support for that. But I just layer some pillows and it works out ok.

Oh, and if you live in an old building with really narrow halls or doorways, the moving in and out of the sofa will require a bit of disassembling and reassembling. It's not a petite piece of furniture.

But I think it's pretty reasonably priced for the dual function of sofa and bed, comfort and durability.
