BTW - there are a couple of ways of solving this, depending on how critical it is to you to avoid an elevation difference with adjacent rooms - it can be ground down level (called resurfacing - more expensive unless just a very small area - a dozen or less square feet and only maybe a half inch to an inch in height, the other is pouring an overlay over it.

If you are planning on putting down a flooring product on top of it (carpet, wood, laminate, etc) there is one easier method that does not usually result in a concrete surface durable for prolonged traffic, but is fine as underlayment under other flooring - and that is self-levelling cementatious levelling compound, which is basically a flowable grout that self-levels because it is so runny. Not as tough as concrete but makes for a nice level floor to put other flooring over. If you go with that or a concrete oerlay, I would recommend that waer-resistant agent be added to it to redue moisture transmission through the slab, as well as having the surface sealed with a waterproofing agent (or waterproof epoxy floor paint if leaving exposed).
