Hotel Krat serves as the central hub in Lies of P, marking the true beginning of the game. This renowned establishment is inhabited by humans and features several friendly characters. From the early moments in Krat Central Station, a mysterious voice guides players toward Hotel Krat. The hotel is notably owned by Antonia, who shares an association with Geppetto, the creator of Pinnochio.
In this guide, we will provide an overview of the NPCs you’ll encounter within Hotel Krat and the services they offer. There are crucial elements within the hotel that demand your attention. It is here in Hotel Krat that you’ll unlock fast travel for the first time in Lies of P. Be sure to follow this comprehensive guide to Hotel Krat for a 100% complete experience.
Entering Lies of P Hotel Krat
To access Hotel Krat, you must first defeat the Parade Master boss located at the end of Krat Central Station Plaza in Cerasani Alley. Upon reaching the hotel’s entrance, you’ll need to falsely claim that you are human to gain admission. Once inside Hotel Krat, you will be greeted by an unfamiliar yet friendly face – Sophia, the same individual who has been guiding you throughout your journey.
Engaging in conversation with Sophia, she will assist in repairing Gemini, the cricket, and provide guidance on using ergo to enhance your character’s attributes. Additionally, Sophia will inform you about the last known whereabouts of Geppetto, which is Elysium Boulevard. Be sure to acquire the Moonphase Pocket Watch from her, allowing you to return to the last visited Stargazer without expending your ergo.
Within the hotel lobby, interact with the main Stargazer to unlock the fast travel feature. This enables instantaneous transportation to any previously repaired Stargazer – a feature you’ll find invaluable as your adventure unfolds. It’s important to note that Hotel Krat is a non-hostile zone in the game, meaning you won’t be able to wield your weapon here. The hotel is also home to three more NPCs, each of whom we will introduce in this guide.
Another NPC you’ll encounter within Hotel Krat in Lies of P is located in the same hall. This individual goes by the name of Polendina and serves as the butler to Lady Antonia, the hotel’s owner. Polendina operates as a merchant, offering various items in exchange for Ergo. Conversely, he is also open to purchasing items from you in exchange for Ergo should you find yourself in need of the currency. The items available for purchase from Polendina include:
- Fable Catalyst (400 ergo)
- Legion Magazine (200 ergo)
- Sawtoothed Wheel (100 ergo)
We strongly advise against making any purchases at this time since all these items are readily available in the next section of the game. Ergo is a valuable resource that you’ll need, so it’s best to save it for now.
From the main hall, turn left to find an old lady sitting in a wheelchair in front of a grand portrait. She is the owner of Hotel Krat and an old acquaintance of Geppetto. Apparently, the father of Pinocchio trusts her so much to leave a few belongings in her possession. After a couple of dialogues, she will offer you the following items.
- Someone’s Memory (Black Attire)
- Show Off Clothes (Gesture)
Search the area to find Venigni’s Krat Landmark Guide 1 on a table.
The last NPC you’ll encounter in Hotel Krat in Lies of P is Eugenie, who serves as a weaponsmith and technician. Eugenie provides you with your first Legion arm attachment, the Puppet String. This attachment allows you to pull enemies toward you from a distance and consumes a Legion magazine when its charge is depleted. Eugenie also offers two additional valuable services in exchange for unique items and ergo.
- Upgrade Weapons. Requires hidden moonstone and you should already have one from outside the Hotel Krat entrance.
- Alter Handle. Requires Eugenie cranks and allows you to customize your weapons for different builds
Exit the hotel and head to the courtyard near Eugenie’s workshop, where you’ll find two practice dummies. On the upper floor, you’ll encounter two locked doors that cannot be opened at this stage of the game. Proceed through the main door to access Elysion Boulevard.
