Can you get distilled white vinegar (not the malt kind for chips, but the plain white)? If yes, set several shallow bowls out in the room-trust me, the vinegar smell will fade in about a half hour, and so will the musty smell. You can also wash the walls with a vinegar and water solution; another trick is to dampen a tea towel with vinegar and wave it around the room for a few minutes. That trick works especially well if something has burned on the cooker. :)

Vinegar works best.

I would buy a bottle of ammonia found in the cleaning or laundry section. Place a couple dishes of ammonia in the room. It will absorb the odors. I have even added ammonia to my shampooer when I clean my carpet.
