        Great concept for a guest bedroom. I don't recommend it for your everyday couch but it's great to use with a desktop table to work from in our second bedroom. More so, the design to turn it into a guest bed is perfect. For sleeping, you need a mattress pad and a foam pad to make it more comfortable. GReat for small spaces!

          The product is good for when guests stay as it folds out to a queen bed. Perfect for a couch, too, as it is very comfortable.

                Customer comments about Mario 80" Convertible Sofa:

                This works really well as a sofa in the home office, which doubles as the guest bedroom. I like it for afternoon naps when it's configured as sofa. My overnight guests say its comfortable as a bed and they don't feel the space where the two cushions meet (a concern of mine).

                After a few months, the seat cushion felt like it was leaning forward and sinking in the middle. We called Customer Service and arranged for someone to take a look at it. They replaced the cushion with our custom fabric and may have even redesigned the framework to make it more stable. I'm very satisfied with the replacement part and the service.

                Service and delivery comments:

                The original sofa had some issues with the seat cushion so we dealt with the delivery team and customer service about 3 times. Each time, they were responsive and professional. The entire process took a few months, but in the end, we received an improved replacement part with our custom fabric. I'm very happy with the customer service and would buy from Room and Board again because of it.

                    Great sofa for our office. We have occasional guests and they all love it! The Queen size is a plus, as compared to other convertible sofas that are full size. It is easy to convert from a sofa to a sleeper. We love the look of the sofa in our office and it provides for another comfy space to sit and relax.

                      We've been looking for a while for an affordable convertible that opens up to a queen and the Mario fit the bill. We ordered it in red for our TV/Guest room. We've had several house guests since, and they all noted how comfortably they slept. Even my mother-in-law! The Mario is a breeze to open and close and the red sofa looks great in our otherwise neutral room.

                      Customer comments about Mario 80" Convertible Sofa:

                      We use this sofa in our office/guestroom where we often watch tv. I wanted a comfortable sleeper sofa that didn't take up too much space in our cramped room, and this one is almost there. When we first got it I set it up with a thin egg crate foam plus a feather topper to test if I could make it comfortable for my picky mom who will be visiting soon (the seat and back become the bed and are made of fairly firm foam). It was so comfortable I fell asleep on it two nights in a row and was sorry to set it back up as a sofa. It's also great that it takes up no more space than the size of the bed (a queen in our case) as the back becomes part of the bed and it has no real arms.

                      My issue is with using it as a sofa. The "arms" are two loose cushions about 3" or 4" high, whereas a proper arm should be about 8" from the top of the seat. I knew this going in so paid a pretty penny for some very nice comfy big throw pillows to use in lieu of a proper arm. It's loungey but not supportive. And the cushions slide off if you like to lean against them a lot,as they're not attached.

                      Also, as the foam is pretty firm you don't sink into it as you would regular sofa seat cushions. On a regular sofa the seat may also angle slightly down toward the back so you really feel like you are settling in. On this sofa the seat is very flat and firm which ends up feeling like you will slide forward out of the seat. It's very difficult to feel like you can really settle in to watch a movie for example.

                      Overall, I would give it a C+ for comfort as a sofa and a B- as a sleeper, unless you add foam and feather toppers as we did in which case it's really up to you to customize it to your comfort. I give it an A for styling. Modern but fits in to most environments. B- for quality (the seat component falls off its channel every time we set it up as a sleeper). My final thought is that in hindsight, I wish I had paid the extra $200-300 dollars for a fabric upgrade because the in-stock fabric we went with (the charcoal microfibre) shows every cat and dog hair that lands on it. It's nice looking and soft though, so our plan is to keep the seat covered with a throw blanket until guests arrive.

                      I would recommend this sofa for a guest room for occasional use as a sofa or sleeper.
