Superstrings propagating on backgrounds of the form AdS3 ×G/H are studied using the coset CFT approach. We focus on seven dimensional cosets which have a semiclassical limit, and which give rise to N = 3 superconformal symmetryin the dual CFT. This is realized for the two cases AdS3 × SU(3)/ U(1) and AdS3 × SO(5)/ SO(3), for which we present an explicit construction. The spectrum of the two coset models is analyzed and compared.
