Clarification regarding the narration on houses in Jannah

Question

My question is regarding the below Hadith:

“I guarantee a house on the outskirts of Jannah for one who leaves arguments even if he is right, and a house in the middle of Jannah for one who abandons lies even when joking, and a house in the highest part of Jannah for one who makes his character excellent.”

Is this a Hadith Qudsi, where the pronoun “I” is referring to Allah, because no one but He can guarantee entry into Jannah, not even Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
