This is normal. Any noise will disturb sleep, although you might find that a constant background noise, such an air conditioner,is useful to drown out other sounds, but doesnt disturb because it is constant.

Same with me, I live close to a busy road that''s very noisy. I sleep with a fan on, helps to cut down on noise and keeps the mosquitoes out!

Yes,it is normal. It happens to me all the time. If I ever sleep in a noisy environment,chances are I''m extremel exhausted.
Otherwise,a soft tick from a clock alone,will force me out of bed and i''l take out the battery.
