As far as confronting your neighbor, assess the situation. Does the neighbor seem like a reasonable, civilized, mature individual? Or does your neighbor seem like the kind of person that may be violent? If you think you can approach him, do so in a mature manner and don't attack him or his actions. Simply point out how his actions have been keeping you up and ask if he can stop with the noise so your sleep is not disturbed. If this doesn't work or you don't think you can approach him, talk to you manager or owner of the property so something can be done. Contacting your city code enforcement officers, police officers, and/or council members can also help you. Keep a record of every noise disturbance and attempt at resolution in case you talk to someone who wants some kind of proof of how long this has been going on. Record the incident as well. If you have a video or voice recorder on in your room and the loud noise can be heard, it makes your complaints valid and you have indisputable proof which always helps.
Good Questions: How Do You Quiet Your Neighbor???

If they are complaining about the noise then they must be right. You have children and you live above them so it is likely that you are bothering them. I don't know why people are suggesting the other party move out or you make more noise. That is childish and immature. If you really don't think you're making any noise record your behavior in the house and see if there's anything you or you're children are doing that you weren't aware of. You can also ask the people down stairs to record the noise they claim you make so you can have proof that they have valid complaints.
