INXS - when the GC Residences ran a shuttle bus direct to Wan Chai, I would have recommended it. Now I would say the commute is more than an hour as there is NO direct express service (except during rush hour, if you are lucky) as the 962 has been mostly cancelled and the 962B is rather slow. But I agree with the rest of your post. Possibly get a car and commute by car - it would be cheaper than renting on the Island and should only take about 25-30 mins. But it'll be a hellish 25-30 mins!
