You are talking about what you need:
4 hours of good sleep

If you were talking about how much time to set aside for the purpose of sleeping, then you could say:
4 hours for good sleep

Many thanks

In my opinion, "sleep tight" is something you would say to a child or someone you are very close to, like a family member. "Sleep well" sounds a little more formal.
