As you explore the Hotel Krat, you’ll come to know the denizens that roam its forsaken halls. Below, we’ve broken them down, so you know who to speak to start getting some upgrades and more.


The elusive owner of the Hotel Krat provides some insight into the main story of Lies of P… and maybe more.


Eugenie acts as this game’s equivalent of a blacksmith and will help you upgrade your assorted weapons, assuming you have the right materials to do so.


While not immediately available, Geppetto will head to Hotel Krat early on in the game after finding him at the Mad Donkey boss fight. He will allow you to upgrade your innate abilities and develop a skill tree, as well as send you on your merry way of murderous intent.


Poldenia is the automated receptionist in Hotel Krat who also doubles as a merchant, allowing you to buy and sell items whenever necessary.


Sophia acts as your conduit for levelling up in Lies of P. Similar to the Firekeeper in Dark Souls 3 or The Doll in Bloodborne, she will exchange the Ergo you collect from defeating enemies and transfigure it to allow you to level up your various stats.


Eventually, you'll be tasked with finding Venigni and bringing him back to Hotel Krat. After you do, following some significant side objectives, he will be loitering around and helping you craft new Legion Arms, as well as upgrading the ones you already have.

That’s everything you need to know about the denizens of Hotel Krat in Lies of P. If you’re looking for more characters to talk to, be sure to check out how to complete the Weeping Woman side quest for a unique reward.
