Arlene House, Previously Chung Thye Pin Building

Arlene House, an unfamiliar name to the Ipoh citizens. Perhaps many would recognize this building as Chung Thye Phin Building (once called Sztolee Building), which is right opposite to Burbs & Giggles Café. The 3-storey colonial style heritage building is one of its kind that is remarkable in the city. However, it had not been fully utilized for years until some renovation works carried out recently. It's has just installed with its new name, Arlene House this morning to mark a new milestone in its journey of life. With the resurrection of neighbouring shophouses, including the SPH de Silva Building, Chung Thye Phin Building will probably finds its new occupant soon. My personal opinion is that it will be best for a heritage boutique hotel and restaurant. There are more precious historical photos of Chung Thye Phin Building available in the website of Ipohworld's World, which take us back to the Ipoh of beginning 20th century.
