The problem of self-consistent estimates of the deconfinement temperature in the framework of the bottom–up holographic approach to QCD is scrutinized. It is shown that the standard soft wall model gives for the planar gluodynamics around 260 MeV in good agreement with the lattice data. The extensions of the soft wall model adjusted for descriptions of realistic meson spectra result in a broad range of the predictions. This uncertainty is related with a poor experimental information on the radially excited mesons.
