No not yet, I call the embassy in california every week, but most of the time they don't answer. My wife has tried to find a business to sponsor me but so far she has been unable.

Hello fellow travelers,

I completed my quarantine at the Sokha on the 18th. I think they put the foreigners in the mini apartments. Sorry to disagree but I found the food to be very good, albeit limited. The only decent thing on the breakfast menu is the omelette that comes with a decent cup of fruit, juice, mushrooms, chicken sausage, sliced ham, and two chicken wing drumsticks and bread selection. I mostly ate the nicoise salad for lunch, though they had a really good seafood spicy soup with rice. Dinner options were good. Stir fried vegetables with rice, A peppered grilled chicken breast with mashed potatoes,beef tenderloin Lok Lak, and a flat noodle with vegetable dish. Those are about the only things I ate and were all quite tasty. There are 10 items on the menu from 12 to 10pm. Breakfast is from 6 to 10, but expect at least an hour delay from when you order. They charge $10 a meal which comes out of your 2K. There is a good selection of tea and the standard Nescafe. Housekeeping brings you all the water and condiments upon request. Tiger beer is $5. I don't drink sodas so I'm not certain of the other drink options. I walked the hallway in front of my room with no problem and just avoided the staff at mealtimes. I only ran into the guard a couple of times and he didn't seem all that bothered. Yah it sucks, but the views are good and you can open the windows. Other then the gyms, pools and clubs, evrything else seems open, but not much business. Plenty of expats hanging about. Hope this helps. Wear your mask.

Wow, thanks for the warning for sokha! At both quarantine hotels I was at I was able to order anytime outside delivery from food panda etc. the food at the hotels is awful. Sounds like they’re trying to con you in to over priced food. I brought boxes of nutrition bars and snacks with no problem too from the states. I would definitely not stay there.
