Hello! Please, tell me how should I say.

What do You propose me? or What can You propose me?
or, maybe, another version of this question...

Thank You very much for helping. Have a nice day. Good bye.

Without the preceding dialogue it's difficult to provide a definitive response, but if the person spoken to said, for example, "I don't like the way the furniture is arranged". Typical responses could be, "What do you propose?" or "What do you propose I/we do?", but ".....propose me" is not correct/natural.

Thanks for answer. For example, if I go to a hotel and a manages asks me "Would you like an accommodations?" and I want to answer something like that "What can\do you propose me?" I mean "Does there is a single room?" but in my version. Is it possible? And how would be better to answer in this situation?

It would be more natural to ask for what you want. "Do you have a single room?" For example.

In some contexts, say, a farmer's market, you may be able to say "What have you got?" or "What do you have to offer me?" or "What do you suggest?"
That's when you're open to whatever may be available, not when you want something specific.
