Is this polite or impolite form?
"Seien Sie mein Gast." or "Sei mein Gast."?

The Japanese sentence means "Please use this freely" "Please use it as you wish". Which is pretty close to "be my guest" All of the Japanese sentences mean about the same thing. Does this help you ?

No, the question is, to whom you can say that sentence. Can you say it to people who you'd call "vous/Sie" or to people who you'd call "tu/du" or both like the English sentence?
My experience with me questions on Japanese sentence tells me that it's both, but as I don't speak Japanese at all I prefer to ask and not to guess...
