Police believe three men are responsible for an overnight blaze at a vacant Brisbane hotel.

The trio entered the property on the corner of Logan Road and Balaclava Street, Woolloongabba, just before 3am on Saturday and lit a fire against a back door, police say.

The men then fled the scene before emergency services arrived.
