Jaipur hotel room emergency - any suggestions?

I am in a situation I hate, I wonder if anyone has tactical advice for improving it.

Never mind how -- but not my idea -- I got involved for part of my trip planning with a travel agency which after endless delays has booked us into a hotel I expect to hate in Jaipur. I wanted a heritage hotel, and we are booked into something called Casa Bella, which has an okay location and is probably clean, but that's it.

I haven't paid for it so I'm not totally stuck with it. I plan to call my first choices - Alsisar Haveli is one of them - daily to see if they have a cancellation. Any other ideas? Does anyone know an agent likely to have access to anything?

Advice - do not let travelling companions interfere with your own intuition or wishes.

Sorry, previous post should have been tagged India, maybe this one will help thread come up for India searchers.

You could try this agent: www.rajasthantravelservice.com/ - they are based in Jaipur. I used them for car and driver and mid-range hotels, and they looked after me very well.

we stayed at Jai Mahal and really enjoyed it. It's very well maintained, new/renovated and immaculate service. It's won by Taj, so does have a little more of corporate feel to it. but honestly, after staying in several "heritage" hotels in India, a little professionalism was nice to have. anyway, you can at least check availability through their website. you may be able to get a better rate through an agent though.
