New Savoy Hotel (29 September 2012)


New Savoy Hotel (GPS: 5.42221, 100.32743) is a small hotel housed in a heritage building at 156 Hutton Lane. It was built around the late 19th century, and used to be the residence of Mohd Ariff bin Mohamed Tajoodin, a wealthy Malay entrepreneur who is a patron of Boria. His son Wan Chik Ariffin built the Wan Chik Ariffin Mosque at Perak Road.

Mohd Ariff Tajoodin is credited as being one of the founding fathers of the Penang Malay Association.
