Pension? What is pension? What to do with retirement?
First of all, “pension” is nothing to do with “retirement” okay .. Pension is one of the guesthouse type. The difference is, the pension is more similar to the B&B because it is managed by the family. The management is usually staying in that house, so staying at pension will open the opportunity to interact more intimately with the local population and culture.
The difference with the guesthouse lies in the ambience. Typically, pension rarely have dormitory rooms. So the ambiance in pension is a bit more private than the guesthouse, nevertheless not as private as staying at the hotel. And, because pension does not have the complete facilities of the hotel, the rate in general is more affordable than the hotel in that class.
Whereas the difference with the B&B lies in the dining facilities, just because the pension (usually) not only provides breakfast, but also provides lunch and dinner.
In Indonesia, pension type accommodation may still be less popular with other accommodation types such as hotels, guesthouses, and bed & breakfast (B&B). But this type of accommodation is quite popular in some countries, including the island of Jeju in South Korea. In fact, you can say the type of pension accommodation is quite mushrooming in Jeju.
