Always been a good choice -- you're a pleasant 20 minutes' walk from the old city, in the middle of a newish, very quiet, and well-kept shopping center (Area Central). 8-10 minutes downhill from the bus station. You avoid the massive crowding of the touristy center, and have the convenience of a supermarket, coffee shops, shoe repair places, etc etc. on your doorstep. Good place to end the camino, or to begin exploring Galicia.
