Room Mate, the hotel company founded and chaired by Enrique Sarasola, does not earn money even though there are more tourists in Spain than ever. The company recorded losses of 7.4 million euros in 2019 for a turnover of 40 million, compared to the 5.8 million losses and 35 million of turnover in 2018. The accounts, recently deposited in the Mercantile Registry to which it has had access to elDiario.es through the Insight View platform, they acknowledge that it was the best year in the history of Spanish tourism, but they do not explain the reason for these poor results. 84 million international tourists visited our country then, before the pandemic blew up the sector.
