Scrolling for immersion, single screen for strategy. Both is ok. But scrolling is harder to "get right".

When I first played Moria, the scrolling dungeon was nice.  It felt as though I could get lost.  Variety is a good thing.

Pixel Dungeon does it quite nicely, being scrollable but allowing you to zoom in and out so that you can see the whole map if you want.

I think it depends on what you are aiming at. Scrolling is only good if your aim is to give the player a challenge in finding the correct way.
