Server 2012 R2 - standard you can have one Physical Hypervisor (running no other roles) and TWO server 2012R2 Virtual instances.  If you run other roles on the Physical instance, then you can only run ONE other Virtual instance.  This has changed somewhat from 2008 as there is no such thing as an enterprise version any more.

it's actually changed since 2008 R2!

2012 Standard....

You get a 1 physical license for your physical server, and 2 licenses of Standard to run virtually. (e.g. 2 VM licenses)

With Windows Server 2012 Standard licence you get one full-featured physical server (that can run any additional applications, like SQL or Exchange for example) or one Hyper-V-role-only (with basic network services) physical server and two full-featured virtual machines on the same host. If you have any other role/application running on the Hyper-V host, you cannot use the same license for virtual machines

Running ANYTHING on the Hyper-V server other than support tools for Hyper-V (backup, for example) is a HORRIBLY BAD IDEA - DON'T DO IT.
