Pension refers to a boardinghouse.  In many places in Europe, homeowners 
plump up the household budget by renting rooms, often with breakfast 
included.  It's a less expensive alternative to getting a room in a hotel. 
In the U.S., we've gentrified the experience by creating the "Bed and 
Breakfast" and raising the price tag.
