How comfortable are these things? Won't people get a bit dizzy on the upper deck especially on turns?

IMO, better than the average transit service in most of the world.
Sitting on the upper deck doesn't really get much dizzier than the lower deck.
But some sensitive people do feel the difference.

They're not turning at 80mph, so the forces aren't too severe.

Maybe that has the better maneuver ability for some routes on the narrow HKI streets.

No, it's a single deck. Here is a full picture of the same model.
